VOTING PROCESS:

Alberta Music must fill a minimum of two (2) and a maximum of four (4) positions on the board of directors. Our by-laws state that  no less than three (3) board members shall be elected from each of the geographic areas representing northern and southern Alberta, with Red Deer serving as the diving municipality. 

Directors in good standing represent the northern region with two (2) members and three (3) members in the southern region. Therefore, in order to fulfill the geographical requirements of the board, the first candidate from the northern region will be elected to the board of directors. The final elected board members will be the candidates with the next highest number of votes, regardless of the region. In the case of a tie, a second ballot between the nominees in the tie will decide the successful nominee.

* Only two (2) votes per Band or Company membership at the Annual General Meeting
