We will be holding a special election on Sunday, April 26th, 2020 to fill 2 open board of director seats. Both of these seats will be 17 month terms, up for re-election at the September 2021 regular BOD elections.

We are accepting nominations from now until Sunday March 22nd, 2020. Anyone interested in running for one of these open seats should contact a board member (secretary@blraa.com) to express their intent to appear on the ballot.

All ballots will be mailed and postmarked by Thursday March 26th, 2020 to ensure 30 day advanced notice to all members.

For those who are unfamiliar with the election process, interested persons run for a seat on the board of directors. After the votes are tallied and winners are determined, the complete board of directors will meet immediately following the election to determine which positions each board member will be appointed to.

It is critically important that we have participation from the membership in this process as the board cannot properly operate without all 9 seats filled. If you have never had a position on the board, please consider volunteering your time. If you have been on the board before, please consider another term.

If you have any questions about the process, please reach out and we look forward to receiving your nomination.
