(Print name of Club President or Vice President of Education)

give my proxy for ____________________________________Club#__________________
                  (Club Name)

(Print name of the member of the club)

(President or Vice President of Education)


This Proxy certificate must be submitted to the Credentials’ Desk to obtain ballot.

FACTS: At the District Council meeting, each club President and Vice President of Education in attendance is entitled to one vote. However, if either or both officers cannot attend, they may designate, in writing, any other active member of their club to act as proxy or proxies for their club. (Use the form above).

In the event one of these officers does not attend the meeting and has not designated in writing an active member of the club to act as his or her proxy, the officer or proxy holder in attendance is deemed to hold the proxy of the other, and may therefore cast two votes at the meeting. This assures that every club is represented by two votes.

In addition, each district officer in attendance, including Area Directors, is entitled to one vote, but CAN carry a maximum of three votes.  Because they are District Executive Committee (DEC) members, they carry their own vote plus up to two more, if they are President or Vice President of Education of their club OR carry the proxy certificates from their club(s) for these officers. Other members are limited to a maximum of two votes each.
