NCRA’s Constitution & Bylaws permit members to cast their votes via secure online means. But to exercise the right, members must have a current email address on file in NCRA’s membership database. This enables NCRA to keep you informed of any amendments coming up for a vote and to provide you with 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 24-hour voting period. The date by which your email address must be updated to vote is July 8.
