NCRA’s Constitution & Bylaws permit members to cast their votes in contested elections and on bylaws amendments via secure, online means, even if they can’t attend the Annual Business Meeting at the Convention & Expo. But to exercise the right, members must have an active email address on file in NCRA’s membership database. This will enable NCRA to keep you informed if a contested election or amendment is coming up for a vote and provide information on how to register and cast your vote online. Members who are eligible to vote will be able to sign on to the secure website and then vote through a private, secure link during the 12-hour voting period.
Please make sure that we have an active email address for you in our database by July 15. Contact the Member Services and Information Center at 800-272-6272, or update your NCRA account at NCRA.org. Look for “Renew or update your record” under the “Membership Tools” category.
In order to be able to vote on the amendments, individuals must join NCRA or provide an updated email to NCRA by July 15. Voting will occur in conjunction with the NCRA Annual Business Meeting in Chicago, on Thursday, Aug. 4.
There will be no voting stations on site at this year’s event. Instead, members may cast their votes regarding Bylaws amendments and on any two-party elections to the Board of Directors via their phones, tablets, or computers. Voting begins two hours after the close of the Annual Business Meeting, which will be held on Thursday, Aug. 4, from 8:30 – 11 a.m. CT. Voting is open for 12 hours.
