KEY POINTS OF NOTE
> Members from all jurisdictions are eligible for election to the Board positions listed above.
> In accordance with the RACMA Constitution, a maximum of two Fellows residing in the same jurisdiction may serve as elected Directors on the RACMA Board.
> The RACMA Board resolved recently, in accordance with legal advice, it should not accept a nomination from a current Board Member for election to a different position on the Board. To nominate for a different position on the Board, a current Board Member must first resign their current Board position, effective at the next AGM.
> As two Board Members have recently resigned from their positions on the Board, effective from this year’s AGM, this has created the situation where Members from all jurisdictions are eligible for election to the Board.
