Proposed Bylaws Amendments
Who Can Vote?
All GSMOL members who are in good standing (i.e. paid up) as of DECEMBER 31, 2019 may vote.
How Do We Vote?
Your MAIL-IN BALLOT is in The Californian magazine that you received in MID-JANUARY, 2020.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO DISCARD THIS MAGAZINE!
New members who joined after December 31 will not receive this issue of the Californian (but you will still be able to read it after the election when it will be posted on the website under Members Only). If you were a paid-up member as of December 31 and have not received your magazine, please contact the GSMOL Home Office or your Zone Vice President, Region Manager or Associate Manager to get a replacement magazine or ballot.
The ballot and some of the related information has been printed in the magazine in Spanish and Vietnamese as well as English. Instructions for how to mail in your ballot will also be in the magazine. YOUR BALLOT MUST BE POSTMARKED BY MARCH 17, 2020. If you have questions about the election in general, please contact Ron Hulsey, Chairman of the Elections Committee. Questions about the Bylaws amendments can be directed to Henry Cleveland, Chairman of the Bylaws Committee. You will find their contact information on the Board of Directors page in The Californian.
