2018 Corrected Board of Directors Ballots To Be Mailed
Due to a printing error, the beige-colored ballots mailed to AMSAT- NA members for the 2018 Board of Directors election on July 15, 2018 have been declared void. Any of these voided ballots received at the AMSAT-NA office will not be counted.
New ballots labeled "CORRECTED BALLOT 7/20/2018" and printed on yellow-colored cardstock will be mailed to all AMSAT-NA members.
Please vote for no more than three of the 2018 candidates: Tom Clark, K3IO Mark Hammond, N8MH Scott Harvey, KA7FVV Bruce Paige, KK5DO Peter Portanova, W2JV
The Directors positions will go to the three candidates receiving the highest number of votes. In addition, there will be two alternate members chosen, based on the next highest number of votes received.
