AANR Election Time

With your May bulletin, you will get your AANR ballot with instructions on how to vote.  To be eligible to vote, you must have been an AANR member on March 31st of this year.

All of our incumbent officers are running unopposed.  Our regional trustee, Kathy Smith, is also running unopposed.  However, there are several contested elections: Group 4 Club Trustee and  Group 6/7 Club Trustees.   There are also four motions to amend the bylaws.

Two years ago, the Northwest had the largest turnout of all of the regions for the election, just over 10%.  While that is in keeping with other membership organizations, we can do better.  This year, let’s redouble our efforts and make a difference.  (To be transparent, I’m in one of those contested elections and would like to see lots of voting happening).

The voter’s guide for this election is at http://www.aanr.com/blog/welcome-to-the-2016-aanr-voters-guide/.

The Nude News will publish any reasonably sized statements from any of the candidates in one of the next few week’s issues as well as explanations of the proposed legislation so that we can all make informed voting decisions.

But, please take the time to vote.  It will be as simple as logging into the voting site and pushing a few buttons.  Easy to do.  Worth the effort.
