Write-in candidates are permissible on the ballot and the election will be completed online with the final elected officers announced prior to the Annual Meeting.
  5. Submit committee member updates (regarding vacancies and new member names) after discussion with and through the Board Liaison who then provides them to the AACPDM office. All Committee rosters will be then updated automatically through the database.
