Don’t Forget to Vote!
January 17th, 2018
Voting is now open for the 2018 Election of AMHA Board of Directors. Electronic (e-mail) ballots and instructions were e-mailed to all eligible voters on December 28. All 2017 AMHA members 18 years of age and older and in good standing are eligible to cast a vote. Ballots were sent to those eligible voters that had a valid e-mail address on file with AMHA (as previously notified in the NETWORK newsletter, the weekly e-mail Globals, and posted on the AMHA web site). Please check your e-mail to confirm receipt of the ballot. Often, e-mail filters will send it to your “junk” or “spam” folders. Be sure to check there as well.
If you did not receive an electronic ballot (in your inbox or junk mail) and you feel you are an eligible voter, please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-985-4944 and we can make arrangements to update your e-mail and/or have the election company resend your ballot.
It is important to cast your vote! AMHA Bylaws require a minimum number of votes be returned in order to properly elect directors from each region. Even if a region has a single candidate – we MUST receive the minimum number of votes for the election to be approved. Please be sure to participate in this important governing process of your association.
Candidate biographies and platforms are available for review during the voting process online. You will be able to view each before casting your ballot. Remember – only the first ballot cast will count.
Online voting is open until 12:00 midnight (Central Time) on February 14, 2018. Votes can be cast in person or by proxy at the annual meeting and convention in Lexington, Kentucky on Friday, February 16, 2018.
Questions regarding the election should be made to AMHA Executive Director, Carrie Mortensen at the AMHA Office.
(Please note that the AMHA Office is currently closed until Tuesday, January 2, 2018.)
