Hello Fellow RAM Members, As previously indicated, this year is an election year for the RAM Executive Board. Elections are normally held during the Annual Meeting on the last day of the RAM conference in May. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the conference had to be canceled this year. However, thanks to Zoom, we will still be able to hold the Annual Meeting remotely.

THE ANNUAL MEETING, WITH ELECTIONS, WILL BE HELD ON FRIDAY MAY 22, 2020 AT 12:00 P.M. (NOON). The Zoom Meeting ID will be distributed through the listserv by Lorie Savin by May 12, 2020. If you have not received the Zoom Meeting ID and password, but wish to attend, you can contact any of the board members, whose email addresses are listed under the "Referee Info" tab on the "Board and Committees" page. This meeting is open to all RAM members.

Due to the remote nature of the meeting, elections will also be done remotely. At the bottom of the page is a link to the ballot which lists all the candidates by office sought. If you need a copy of the personal statements submitted by each member running for a spot on the RAM Executive Board, please contact Lorie Savin at savinl@oakgov.com. Please vote for one each of the three officer positions noted, as well as seven members-at-large.

Please note the following important details regarding the election:

You must submit your completed ballot no later than Friday May 22, 2020 at 12:15 p.m. (We need your name on the ballot for vote-counting purposes, but all votes will remain confidential.)

You must be present at the Zoom Annual Meeting in order for your ballot to be counted.

Please submit your completed ballot to ALL of the following people: Janet Mendez (JMendez@ingham.org), Lorie Savin (SavinL@oakgov.com), and Kristi Drake (Kristi.Drake@lenawee.mi.us). I hope all of you, as well as your respective families, are well. I look forward to seeing you all remotely at the Annual Meeting!

Take care,
Janet A. Mendez
