It’s that time of year again!  The RCA Board of Directors election ballot will be open beginning Friday, April 19th through Friday, April 26th. Please note that a “non-vote” is deemed as abstention, and at least 25% of our membership MUST vote to be considered binding.

Brooke Conover, who has served as Co-Director of Professional Development for the past 2 years, will be ending her time on the Board.  Karen Bobrovsky, who has served on the Board for 2 years as Director of Membership, will also reach the end of her tenure in that position.  In addition, Anne Jernigan, who has served on the Board since 2007 and most recently as the Director of Finance and President, will be stepping out of her Director of Finance. We sincerely thank each of these Directors for their dedicated years of service and contributions to helping the RCA achieve its success!

There are four Board positions being vacated that are on the ballot: Co-Director of Professional Development, Director of Membership, and Director of Finance.

Additionally, there are proposed changes to the RCA bylaws for 2013, including broadening membership requirements, adding new sections about professional conduct, expanding the Board of Directors to include a Past President role, and adding term limits for Board positions, to name a few. The complete list of proposed bylaws changes and the rationale behind them are fully listed within the ballot.   Click here to begin survey!
