Voting Process

The election of IUPA Directors will be done through a Yes/No vote on the proposed slate of nine candidates put forth by the Board. This slate of nine proposed Directors includes individuals from the current interim Board plus the one candidate nominated from the Membership.

It’s important to note that there will not be a separate vote for each individual. This is because the slate includes all nominated directors. Members should instead answer the question “Do you think the proposed slate of Directors will be able to carry out IUPA’s mission?” when voting Yes or No.

The vote will be conducted by roll call of all Members registered at the AGM, both in person and remotely. The Chair will call out Member names one by one and ask for that person’s voice vote of Yes or No on the collective slate of all nine proposed Directors. The Secretary will tally the votes and announce the result once every Member has given her or his vote.
