Bylaws require at least 1 Builder member be elected this year to maintain mandated board member ratios.  The builder member with the most votes among builder members will be deemed elected in such case as a builder member does not finish high enough in the final tally.  

Members may vote in one of two ways:

  1. In person at the November 19th General Membership Meeting (click here to register to attend) or,

  2. Via absentee e-ballot.  To vote via absentee e-ballot, please click here.

Absentee e-ballots must be cast by 5pm on Monday, November 18th, 2019.  If you vote by Absentee Ballot, you will not be able to vote in person at the General Membership Meeting. In the event of a tie, all member firms in attendance at the GMM are eligible to vote in any tie breaking vote.

Please note:  no matter which method you choose to vote, each member company is entitled to one ballot vote.
