LARRY MCCOY WAS APPOINTED TO FILL THE POSTION AS PRESIDENT FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE 2015 SEASON (THIS WAS DETERMINED BY THE REMAINING BOARD, ALONG WITH THE GUIDANCE OF THE INFR OFFICE). AT THE FINALS WE WERE TO HOLD THE ELECTION, WE ASKED FOR NOMINATIONS AND RECEIVED NONE. SINCE THERE WAS NO NOMINATIONS FOR THE OFFICE, THEREFORE NO ELECTION NEEDED TO BE HELD. LARRY MCCOY WAS THEN SET IN AS THE PRESIDENT OF AMAIRA FOR A 3 YEAR TERM.
