It is time once again to make your voice heard in choosing new leadership positions for GBTA. Please take a moment to review the election materials and platform statements in the Folleto de Elecciones de la Junta Directiva 2018.
This August, during GBTA’s annual Convention in San Diego, all Direct and Allied members will have the opportunity to take part in our election process. The open positions on this year’s ballot include three Direct Member at Large seats and one Allied Member at Large seat. In this online brochure, you will find information and platform statements from all of our participating candidates. I encourage you to take some time to review the information and get to know your candidates, so you can make an informed choice when you cast your vote.
On Monday, August 13, during the Annual Business Meeting at Convention, each candidate will deliver their campaign speech. You will be able to cast your vote for the next leadership electronically Monday, August 13 through Tuesday, August 14. In order to vote, you must be a current Allied or Direct Member of the Association. To vote onsite, you must also be registered for Convention by July 31, 2018. If you have questions about your membership status, please check with GBTA’s Member Care Team at [email protected] before July 31.
The GBTA Board of Directors serves as the governing body of the Association and is responsible for establishing the focus and direction of the Association. This is your opportunity to vote for the candidates you believe will best lead our organization, so I strongly encourage you to participate in the GBTA electoral process.
Our Association’s continued success is driven by the dedication of many member volunteers. Keep our Association strong by being an active participant and cast your vote this August 13th and 14th at Convention or via an absentee ballot by August 6th! More info on absentee ballots will be coming soon.
