Whereas, under section 6.1 of the FPA Bylaws, active and life members are required to elect 3 Directors and the Treasurer at the annual convention. Such convention, however, has been cancelled in 2020 due to corona virus issues, and, therefore, such action is being taken without a meeting.

Whereas, the following persons have been nominated by the Nominating Committee to serve a 2-year term as Director, and that, further, the Treasurer has been nominated for a 1-year term.
Whereas, this form is being sent to all Active and Life members via email.
Within 30 days after obtaining authorization by written consent, notice will be given to those members who are entitled to vote but have not consented in writing as required by Section 617.0701(4).
If elected, these Directors and the Treasure will begin their duties at the close of the July 23, 2020 FPA Board meeting.
