New Election for Athlete Representative on Board of Directors

June 11, 2013, 12 a.m. (ET)
Due to some extenuating circumstances with the original athlete vote, the board decided that a new election should be conducted to determine who will be the male athlete to serve on the USA Boxing Board of Directors.

The ballots sent out a few weeks ago to qualified athletes contained the names of three athlete candidates: Cam F. Awesome, Tommy Duquette, and Mikaela Mayer.  Because of the way our bylaws are written, we must have gender diversity with regard to the athletes on the board, if at all possible, therefore Mikaela Mayer was elected to fill one of the two athlete positions on the Board.

This new election is between Tommy Duquette and Cam F. Awesome.  USA Boxing will send a ballot via email to those athletes qualified to vote. If you do NOT receive an email, and you feel you meet the criteria of an elite athlete as described, please contact Betsy McCallister at USA Boxing ( as soon as possible.

The DEADLINE to vote is Friday, JUNE 21, 2013!  Do NOT wait until the last minute!
Ballots must be RECEIVED no later than 5:00pm Eastern time on Friday, June 21, 2013.

To be qualified to vote in this election, you must have competed for the United States in the past 10 years at a Pan American or Olympic Games, or another Operation Gold event such as a World Championship; OR within the past 24 months finished in the top half of USA Boxing’s National Championships or a team selection process for the Pan American Games or Olympic Games.
