Board Ballots on Their Way

Each year MUCA elects its Board of Directors. The Primary Contact for each member company will be sent a Board Ballot with the slate of officers and directors listed later this week.

Per MUCA’s bylaws, each member company has one vote. A write-in candidate may be elected provided they receive a 10% quorum of the voting membership. A 10% quorum is also required for the ballot to be accepted. The vote is ratified (by voice) at the Annual Meeting.

If you have any questions on MUCA’s Board election process and policy, please feel free to contact Stephanie at (651) 735-3908.
