Voting Assignment and Proxy Certification Instructions

The Bylaws of the RRCA allow for the assignment of a proxy vote for member clubs and events. If an RRCA member club or event is not sending their official voting representative (president, director, or owner) to the Annual Meeting of the Membership, then the voting rights of that club or event may be assigned to another authorized representative attending the meeting in person. That person must be qualified by being a member of either the same club or event or from another qualified club or event in good standing in the same state. In accordance with the RRCA bylaws, a proxy cannot be held for clubs or events from different states.
To assign voting rights to a qualified proxy on behalf of a club or event member, the authorized representative must complete the online Voting Rights Assignment Form before March 25, 2019. You must be logged into the site using your membership renewal credentials to access the "members only" section.
Each Appointed Proxy Holder must complete and submit the online Proxy Acceptance Form in accordance with the instructions on the forms.
