Announcements for District Council Members and Proxies

As a reminder, the members of the District Council are the club Presidents and Vice Presidents Education or their proxies and the members of the District Executive Committee.  Members of this District Council are the delegates that may speak, debate, make, second or vote on motions at the upcoming District 29 Annual Business meeting this Saturday at the District 29 Annual Conference. You must be present to participate and we need your club to be represented to achieve a quorum and have your voice heard.

The District 29 Council Meeting is scheduled for Saturday, May 11, 2019 from 1:45 pm – 3:30 pm at Capital One Headquarters, 1680 Capital One Drive, McLean, VA in conjunction with our District 29 Annual Conference.  If you are attending only the District Council Meeting, there will be no conference fee charged.  More information regarding the conference can be obtained at: http://tmd29.org/2019conftmd29/ . The Credentials Desk will close promptly at 1:15pm so please register as a delegate before then otherwise, you will not be able to vote. (Click to view the full agenda for Sat May 11)

Please review the 2019 Annual District Council Delegate’s Package.  I would like you to review this document prior to the meeting especially the Order of Business, Standing Rules, Ground Rules and Minutes from the Fall 2018 District Council Meeting.  As mentioned before, two items of New Business will be the approval of our Realignment Plan and District Leadership Elections.

Please download the proxy form for Presidents and Vice Presidents Education that are unable to attend the meeting but, would like to assign their vote to another member in good standing of their club.  No one member can carry more than 2 votes with the exception that District Executive Committee members can carry no more than 3 votes (2 for clubs, 1 for themselves).  In addition, the District Executive Committee member vote cannot be proxied.

You may email any questions, comments or announcements to me at [email protected] prior to the meeting.

I’ll look forward to seeing you at the District 29 Council Meeting.

Best Regards,

Dwight Yamada, DTM
