What's New > 2020 Virtual Convention & Election/Referendum Updates
Your NC SHAPE Board is hard at work preparing for the 2020 Virtual State Convention which will be held online Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, November 1-3.
The 2020 NC SHAPE Vice Presidential Election and Constitutional Referendum will be held during the 2020 Virtual Conference. The election and referendum begin Sunday, November 1st, and ends at 5 pm (Eastern Time) on Tuesday, November 2nd.
On Sunday, November 1st, an email message containing a unique ballot link with a random, secret access key will be emailed to current professional, retired, and honorary life members. The email will come directly from a secure online voting website called “ElectionBuddy”. The "From" name on emails to voters will be "ElectionBuddy Elections", not NC SHAPE.
To vote, members will click on a website link contained in the email message, access their ballot with their unique access key and enter their choices and submit their ballot. All votes are confidential and cannot be seen by others, including election administrators. A confirmation email is automatically sent to the voter once the voter submits their ballet. Election administrators may view the election results only after the election has ended.
Please be on the lookout for an email from firstname.lastname@example.org and cast your vote! Your opinion matters!
NC SHAPE Nominations and Elections Committee completed its work nominating 3 people for the office of Vice President. However, two candidates withdrew their names from consideration. Therefore, Charla Tedder (Parker) Krahnke is the only candidate for NC SHAPE Vice President. NC SHAPE's vice-presidential election will therefore be a "Vote of Confirmation". Members will cast their ballots to confirm the candidate, reject the candidate, or abstain from voting.
Charla Tedder (Parker) Krahnke
