Each Club how designated AAFTA representativeAugust 12 2017 at 8:44 AM

Response to Hector, I assume the affiliated clubs need to get a vote locally to have their officers
Usually, the Club President
He is the one that holds the vote.
There are no guidelines as to whether this Rep has to consult or not the Club Members.
Theoretically, Clubs can request the BOG to include an issue for voting at the Nationals meeting. It has to be done in time, and I think this was, and is, Jim C's intention when he brought this subject up.
If the BOG heeds the request for inclusion of the matter in the yearly vote, then the point is included in the ballot/proxy that goes out to the Clubs for consideration and voting, even if the Club has no "Rep" at the Nationals' General Meeting.
In that way ALL Clubs can issue a vote on the subject.
In the past, this subject has been de-railed twice.
Once on the timing issue and another on the decision that a simple majority (half plus one) was enough to warrant a change.
Since at the present time we can get all the ducks in a row I do hope this year the issue will be included in the ballot and gets decided.
It's up to the Club's Reps to request this from the BOG.
