THE VOTING PROCESS:
Out of nine Board of Director positions, Alberta Music has four (4) positions open for election. Our by-laws state that a minimum of three director positions must be filled from each geographical area code (780) & (403).
Out of our existing directors who are in mid-term and don’t have to run, three are from the (780) region and two are from the (403) region.
Therefore, the first (403) nominee on this year’s ballot with the most votes will fill the seat on the board that fulfills the required minimum of three directors from that area. From there, like any other election, the other remaining three director positions will be filled by whomever gets the most votes.
