The people who were delegates to the yearend Financial Review meeting for the District held Dec. 12th could continue to serve as delegates .  Please plan to have a delegate (s) join me for the May 10th District Business meeting to start at 6:30 p.m. 
As a reminder every club should have delegates attending according to district rules describing club representation.      
Per our bylaws, we need nominated delegates from all our clubs to participate in the meeting.  Those delegates represent your club's voice on matters such as the District Budget and election of Officers.   Your delegates need to be reported to the District Administrator ( by May 9th at the latest to be recorded.  The sooner the better! 
When you report Delegates please provide their name and email address and club.   Once your delegates are reported to Nicki, the invite to the online webinar will be sent to them.  This is necessary so that we have certified delegates attending the online event.  We will open the meeting to non-delegates as well, but we need certified delegates reported first.
As a reminder, per the bylaws, each club is allowed one delegate per each 25 members, rounded to the next highest or lowest number.  For example, a club with 37 members gets one delegate and club with 38 members gets two delegates.  The secretary or President of each club must submit their selected delegates to the District Administrator (Nicki Klein) as soon as possible but not later than May 9, 2018.   Delegates can proxy their vote to another delegate from the same club.  Such proxies must be reported along with the delegate list submitted to the District Administrator.
