  • Voting by Proxy: This method is preferred since a proxy counts toward a quorum. Please complete a proxy form and give it to a member who will be attending the meeting so that they can act as your designee at the Annual Meeting. A member can only hold one proxy.
  • Voting by Absentee Ballot: An absentee ballot does not count towards our quorum, but does enable you to vote. Absentee Ballots must be returned to the Welcome Center or church office by 11:30am on February 22, 2019.

Forms will be available on this page starting February 10. Print the form and complete it. Absentee Ballots should be turned into the church office or to the Welcome Center. Proxy forms should be given to your designee who will in turn bring it to the meeting. There will also copies of both of the forms at the Welcome Center.
