Please note that the historic 2015 conclusion of the House of Delegates prompted significant changes to how NCMS members can participate in the governance process. Last year, the NCMS Constitution and Bylaws were amended to require that voting in NCMS elections be reasonably accessible by all members, not just those attending the Annual Meeting.  The NCMS is contracting with an outside technology vendor to conduct electronic elections, with the option to receive a paper ballot on request.  Balloting will begin two weeks prior to the NCMS Annual Meeting, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016, at the Grandover Resort & Conference Center in Greensboro. Watch your email and upcoming issues of the Bulletin for more information.
