A lot of you probably have already voted in the board election but for those of you who have waited this is just a reminder the ballots have to be in the office by March 7 at 4:30 p.m. That is only about a week away.
No one wants to take the time to vote then have the vote not count so please read the enclosed instructions carefully and don’t forget to sign the secretary envelope where indicated. No signature means your vote will not count because we have no way to know if it was actually sent by the person indicated.
As is normally the case there is an early surge in ballots returned then it levels off. We must remember it is important to turn in your proxy if you are not attending the annual meeting so we can hold the meeting. Last year we couldn’t hold the meeting on the first attempt due to lack of quorum so this is very important. A re-mailing is costly and it all comes from your dues. The proxy must not be put in the little ballot envelope with your ballot but can be in the secretary envelope, which is the larger envelope in which you place the small ballot envelope.
