IACAC Past President
Thank you everyone for participating in voting on this year’s important matters. Here is the voting turnout:
- IACAC only:
- 143 cast/891 total possible = 16%
- NACAC + IACAC members:
- 137 cast/466 total possible = 29%
This year we sent ballots to all IACAC members that we could identify as voting members through their membership profile, not just those that attended the Annual Conference. It is crucial for each member to ensure that their member profile is up to date yearly to ensure proper delivery of ballots.
Membership Meeting Minutes
The Membership Meeting Minutes for 2021 passed unanimously. Thank you to Josephine West for her excellent record keeping.
Next was the 2022-2023 Proposed Budget. The budget passed with a vote of 274 in favor and 1 opposed. Thank you to the committee members and chairs who assisted the finance committee with constructing this budget. And a special thanks to Eric Ruiz for his efforts to improve transparency for all.
Now to the 2022 proposed By-law Changes. All Overwhelming passed, with only 1 or 2 members voting against any of the changes.
