2018-2020 International Board Election Process

Paper election ballots will be mailed to all voting delegates on April 13th.  A preferential voting system will be used.  All paper ballots must be returned by MAIL postmarked no later than June 1st (to either the Washington, DC or Brisbane office) and counted at convention. NO in-person voting for International Board positions will happen at convention. This Bylaw change was to comply with incorporation laws in Washington, DC – approved by delegates at the 2016 Convention in Brisbane, Australia.

Can a Leader still run for the Board if she/he can’t travel?

Although, Washington, DC, laws allow for Board meetings and other meetings to be conducted using videoconferencing, teleconferencing, or any other similar telecommunications device, all persons participating in the meeting must be able to hear each other or communicate effectively simultaneously.

Because of the advancement with technology, the Board seriously considered this request.  However, since Board Meetings span several days and candidates come from different countries/time zones this would make simultaneous interaction for 10 hours each day difficult at best.  More information about this including the referenced Bylaw is included in President Marie’s Board Meeting Message.
