Last Chance to Vote in the AFSA Election!

This is it, your last chance to

vote for the 2017-2019 AFSA

Governing Board and pro-

posed bylaw amendments!

If you have not already

done so, check out the can-

didates’ campaign literature,

proposed bylaw amend-

ments, plus explanation, and

a statement of opposition to

one of the proposals, avail-

able from the AFSA website,

www.afsa.org/elections.

Ballots:

Ballots were

distributed on April 17. If you

have a valid email address on

file with AFSA, an email con-

taining a unique passcode

and instructions for voting

online was sent to you.

If you did not receive that

email, regular members who

were in good standing as of

March 17 can visit the

secure online ballot site,

www.directvote.net/AFSA

,

and request that an email

containing unique login

credentials be sent to you.

Be sure to add

noreply@

directvote.net

to your

approved sender list to

ensure receipt.

Printed ballots have been

sent to all retired members

via the U.S. Postal Service. If

an online and a printed bal-

lot are returned for the same

member, only the printed

ballot will be counted.

Ballot Tally:

On June 8,

at 8 a.m. EDT, the printed

ballots will be collected from

the post office in Washing-

ton, D.C. Printed ballots

must be received at the post

office by that time to be

counted. The online voting

site will also close at 8 a.m.

EDT on

June 8

.

Your vote matters and you

are strongly encouraged to

take this opportunity to have

your say in who will represent

you on the new AFSA Govern-

ing Board. The new board will

take office on July 15. Thank

you for your participation!
