IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT

NOMINATING DELEGATES TO THE NATIONAL CONVENTION

 

Although this may seem an early announcement, I want to be sure each member understands the changes made to the NRLCA constitution at the convention in Reno, NV in 2015.  If you wish to nominate yourself or someone else, you need to be aware of these changes.  This information will also be provided to the membership in the national magazine at the first of the year but it is important enough that I wanted to begin letting you know now.

THE FOLLOWING IS THE NEW LANGUAGE REGARDING HOW TO NOMINATE A MEMBER TO BE ON THE KYRLCA BALLOT FOR CONSIDERATION AS A DELEGATE TO THE NATIONAL CONVENTION (which will be held in Nashville, TN in 2016). 

NRLCA Constitution Article VI Meetings Section 2.B Nominations

  1. Within each state association, nominations for National Delegate shall be submitted by U.S. Mail to a pre-arranged post office box on a nominating ballot or copy. The nominating ballot shall be signed and show the name and address of the member making the nomination, and may include self-nomination. The nominating ballot and instructions shall be posted on the NRLCA Website and in all published issues of The National Rural Letter Carrier from February-May.
  2. Nominations must be received in the pre-arranged post office box at least 40 days prior to the opening of the state convention. Upon receipt, the State Secretary shall send a notice of nomination to the candidate by U.S. Mail.

What this means for the membership: Nominations will no longer be accepted or considered valid if mailed to the home address of the State Secretary/Treasurer.  If a nomination is received by the Secretary/Treasurer at my personal address, I have been instructed to return them to the nominating member as invalid.  This language was adopted by the convention delegates at the 111st National Convention in Reno, NV and as a duly elected state officer, I must follow the National Constitution.  No exceptions.

My advice to the membership, is to watch the national magazine and the KYRLCA website.  The nomination PO Box will be listed there as well as the KYRLCA newspapers after the first of the year.  Nominate early.  Remember mail processing is slower than it used to be so do not be late with your forms.  The nomination deadline is May 14, 2016 which is a Saturday.  I will be sending everyone nominated an acceptance letter/postcard.  If you do not receive this call me immediately.  Do not delay.  If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact me at the number listed in this paper, on the website or in the magazine.

Thank you for your understanding.

Donna Cissell KYRLCA Secretary/Treasurer
