VOTING

Vote for every paying member and associate member organization, the retention of a single National Vote by an appointed National Delegate and additional votes “Club Votes” accorded to Member (and Associate Member) organizations with 50 or more members. Each Member Organization may hold up to 4 votes in addition to their country’s single National vote. Membership must be proven, based on fees. In the case of disputes a list of members with email addresses will be requested. There are specific issues where only National votes (National Delegates) will count, such as determining a quorum.
