Please assign a proxy to a voting member who will be attending the meeting.
Members can carry two proxies only and cannot split proxies, (i.e. all votes must be 'Yea' or 'Nay'). To assign proxies, contact the attending member and ask if they're willing to carry your proxy (they don't need to be in your region). You can fax/mail/hand the form (found here on website) with your signature to your proxy holder. Or you can email the proxy holder with your RID # and a statement saying you have assigned them as your proxy for the Fall 2014 General Meeting (your email counts as a legal signature). Copy the membership chair on your email. Proxies can even be assigned via email up to and during the meeting prior to the quorum being counted. Membership is at membership@MassRID.org
