2018 NWBA Annual Assembly Webcast Via Zoom Meetings

By NWBA

Saturday, June 16 at 8:30 a.m. Mountain

The NWBA has set up its Annual Assembly address for registered members to attend virtually. The Annual Assembly is scheduled for Saturday, June 16 at 8:30 a.m. Mountain. All registered members are able to sign up for the NWBA Annual Assembly by clicking here. We feel it is important for members to have an opportunity to hear from NWBA leadership about the organization and address questions. 

Due to the low registration for the NWBA Annual Congress, we have cancelled the member portions. The Annual Assembly will still be conducted, providing teams an opportunity to vote on NWBA Bylaw Amendments via a secret ballot through Survey Monkey. 

Please follow the steps below in order to confirm the voting delegate for each team:

  1. The NWBA Team must designate who its voting delegate is by Thursday, June 14 at 5 p.m. Mountain by emailing brandonmcbeain@nwba.org. In the body of the email, please state the registered NWBA Team Name, and the registered NWBA member name of the voting delegate with the delegate’s email address. 
  2. The voting delegate must register and attend the Zoom Meeting set for Saturday, June 16 at 8:30 a.m. Mountain. To register for the Zoom Meeting click here.
    • All voting delegates must be registered with the NWBA at least 60 days prior to the Annual Assembly (April 17, 2018);
    • Must be at least 18 years of age; and 
    • A United States citizen. 
  3. The NWBA will use the secret voting function through Survey Monkey. At the beginning of the NWBA Annual Assembly, once participation is confirmed, an email from Survey Monkey will be sent to the voting delegates in attendance to submit the votes for the NWBA Bylaw Amendments. 
  4. The proposed NWBA Bylaw Amendments can be read by clicking here.
  5. The Survey Monkey voting period will close on Saturday, June 16 at 12 p.m. Mountain, and the results will be announced on the NWBA website. 

This process is in accord with the NWBA Bylaws (Section 10.3), that keeps ballots in secret. The report from Survey Monkey confirms who voted but does not relinquish how each voting delegate voted. 

If you submitted an absentee ballot and wish to withdraw the vote, please contact NWBA Executive Director Anthony Bartkowski by email at anthonybartkowski@nwba.org.
