Voting members who do not have valid email addresses in the Society database will receive a print mailing with a Web address to the electronic ballot and log-in credentials. Nominations for officers and directors are made by the Nominating Committee from a list recommended by individual members and from Chapters Regional Conferences. Additionally, any voting member of the Society may write in the name of an individual for any office.
