INTERNATIONAL ELECTIONS INFORMATION

For the first time, every Civitan member who is registered for the International Convention, either in-person or as a virtual attendee, will be eligible to vote, provided they come from a Club In Good Standing, per International Policy 0304. This is a result of the Civitan International Bylaw amendment approved by the membership at the 2023 International Convention. There is no need to register separately as a voting delegate as has been required in past years. Your delegate information will be gathered from your convention registration. You must register as a convention attendee (either in-person or virtual) by July 15, 2024 to be eligible to vote.

To vote, you must register for the convention with a unique email address. The voting system is not able to send login credentials to more than one person to the same email address. Please remember when registering multiple people for a convention, to add a separate email for each person; if not, this could affect your ability to vote.

This year’s election will feature candidate races as well as two bylaw amendments to consider. More information to come. Please refer back to this page for updates.
