2018-2020 Board Election

We are using an on-line process for the 2018-2020 Board election. On April 7 each paid-up member was sent an email message with instructions and an access key for voting. You will be voting on the nine Officers and to accept or reject the amended By-Laws. Voting is now open

View the amended By-Laws here.

Click on your access key in the email message to view the ballot and to vote. The access key is valid for one use only. Your vote will be confidential, but you will receive an acknowledgement that your vote has been recorded. Note that Family memberships will be weighted to count as two votes.

Members who have not supplied the Society with an email address will receive a paper ballot in the US mail.

Voting ends at 11:45 PM on April 30. 2018

Contact Ian Warrander at with questions about the election process.
