Petition for ONLINE APPNA election
Elections in APPNA have become a cumbersome process, which is equally stressful for Candidates and membership. And this year is no different with its share of issues, such as
. Delay in Ballot mailing
· Delay in Ballot delivery by USPS.
· Members gone to Hajj or on vacation
· Not enough time for duplicate Ballots to be delivered.. No marking on envelope to find when the member mailed the ballot.
We need to make things easier for our membership so they can fully participate in the process. Election ONLINE will allow the membership to participate in election without any limitation. Their votes are vital for the survival, growth and future direction of the organization.
For the above reasons mentioned, we propose APPNA to conduct the future APPNA elections ONLINE. I would humbly request all of you to participate in this petition so it can be approved by the Council.
