We Need Your Proxy
by Ellen Pieklo, DTM – District 65 Director
Don’t let your club’s vote go to waste. If you are a club president or Club Secretary, your voice needs to be heard. Every club receives 2 votes at the International Convention – Annual Business Meeting. Please follow the steps below.
The Annual Business Meeting will be held on August 26 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Your voice is important, and you have a significant role to play in this process. Start by learning about the candidates and proposed amendments. At your next club meeting, discuss which candidates best meet the future needs of Toastmasters International and which proposals you are in agreement with. Make it official with a vote to determine how the club’s votes will be cast.
If no one in your club is planning to attend the meeting, you may designate a proxyholder to cast the club’s votes. Proxyholders are required to vote in the manner a club designates; if a voting preference is not designated, the proxyholder may vote in their own best interest.
NOTE: The club president and secretary must assign the club votes. If the votes are not assigned, they cannot be cast. Votes must be assigned even if you are assigning the votes to yourself.
To assign the club votes, go to www.toastmasters.org/clubcentral, log in, choose the club(s) you are assigning proxies for and click on Club Proxy. If you have any questions about the voting process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
