Voting Period

While this email is being sent to all Jurisdictional representatives and the Ordinary members of those jurisdictions, only the designated Jurisdictional member can register his or her vote with the Secretary. A Jurisdiction must be current on its 2013 dues payment in order for its ballot to be counted. If you are unsure of your dues status or of whom your designated voting member is, please contact Mariah Echele at for this information.
A jurisdictional member who is unable to submit his or her vote may designate a proxy. According to the IAGR Bylaws, “Each Jurisdictional member may designate another Ordinary Member to exercise the Jurisdictional Vote; or designate another Ordinary Member from that Jurisdiction to be the Jurisdictional Representative.” Please provide any such designations in writing to Secretary Trude Felde, with copies to Ordinary Members in that jurisdiction, no later than midnight on June 1st (based on Central European Summer Time). The proxy vote itself must be submitted no later than midnight on June 3rd (based on Central European Summer Time).
Voting Form
Please complete the attached Voting form and email it to Secretary Trude Felde at between the dates of May 14 through June 3. Voting concludes at midnight on June 3rd (based on Central European Summer Time) and ballots received after this date will be invalid.

Thank you
IAGR Board of Trustees
