If there are no petitions (see below), the existing Board will officially declare the slate of nominees elected and officially on board members in January 2024. 

Right To Petition

If no petition is filed within the designated period of 10 days, the nominations shall be closed and the nominated slate of candidates shall be declared elected by the Board of Directors at either the next regularly scheduled meeting, or by electronic vote.
