Positions for Election
The Board has amended the by-laws to change the duration of Directors’ terms and the method for voting. A full explanation of the amendments can be found here.

Each year, there will be two Director positions scheduled to be open:
▪ The top vote-getter will receive a three-year term
▪ The second-highest vote getter will receive a full two-year term

In addition, there is a vacant Director position, the term of which ends in April 2018 (it had been held by Lynda Mules, who resigned in February). In this election, the third-highest vote-getter will fill the remainder of the vacated term (two years).

The Secretary Position is a special election this year for a one year term.
