International Board of Directors Election

Board of Directors Elections Information

Board of Directors Election Ballots

Attention members! Next week, the primary contact for each Sister Cities International member organization will be mailed a packet that includes the voting materials for Sister Cities International’s Board of Directors election and bylaw changes. This includes biographies of Board candidates, proposed changes to Sister Cities International’s bylaws, and ballots. Members can either vote by sending in their ballots or designating individuals to vote on site at Sister Cities International’s Annual Meeting at our conference in San Antonio, July 12-13, 2013. Please ensure that the mailing address field for your primary contact in your online profile is completed to guarantee that you receive your ballots. Cities with no designated primary contact will have their ballots mailed to the organizational address on file.

Please note that if you choose to mail the votes, ballots must be postmarked by June 21st. If voting in person, communities must certify their voting representatives and alternates prior to the Annual Meeting (July 12-14). Certifications must be received on or before July 5th.
