The vote for the Guam Visitors Bureau board hit a road bump during their recent membership meeting.
A vote on who will be on the GVB Board was supposed to happen during the Board of Directors Membership Election meeting on Tuesday.
However, the vote was postponed due to them not being able to establish a quorum.
The four nominees were Paula Monk from United Airlines, Rachel Tan from DFS Guam and Saipan, Bill Nault from Nautech Guam, and Carlos Taitano from the University of Guam.
GVB Vice President, Gerry Perez, says that “the total number of votes available for casting is 495. We need 248 for a quorum. Unfortunately, I am advised we have 157 at the meeting. That being the case, it would not be appropriate to proceed with the voting directors, and we will have to do that at another meeting.”The bylaws were brought to light early last year when GVB President Carl Gutierrez had allegations that the board had conflicts of interest, violating the Open Government Act.
Currently, there is no set date on when GVB will reconvene to establish a vote.
