Ballots for the election of members to the Board of Governors are in the mail. Please take the time to fill out your ballot and return it to the National Office.
Remember, AGMA is run by the members for the members, so voting for the candidates of your choice is your opportunity to have a voice in how the business of the union is conducted. Only areas that have open seats or candidates running for a Board seat will receive an election ballot.
However, everyone will receive a referenda ballot. On this ballot you are asked to vote on two separate items, which, if passed, will be effective January 1, 2018. The first is an increase in Initiation Fees, which have not been increased since 1985, and the second is an increase is basic dues, which have not been increased since 1991. The Board of Governors recommends that you vote to approve these two changes.
Only members in good standing as of April1, 2017 are eligible to vote. If you have paid your Basic Dues and did not receive your ballot, please contact Denise@musicalartists.org at the National office. If you have not yet paid your dues, please take the time to pay them so that you may cast your vote.
All ballots must be received in the National Office by 5:00 pm EDT on Thursday, May 11, 2017.
