November 18, 2022

Voting results on proposed request for allocating funds to the website overhaul; Special Business Meeting-voting over Zoho platform open Sept 27-Oct 7, 2022

Compiled by Nominations and Elections Committee Chair, Jessica Grote



Voting opened on September 27, 2022 and closed on October 7, 2022. A survey link with the proposal to allocate funds to overhaul the ZRA website was sent to all professional category members on September 27, 2022 and a reminder was sent on October 4, 2022.

At the time the voting went out, we had 219 professional category members. We needed quorum (one-third) of the professional category members to cast a vote (abstentions do not count) which is 73 members. We had 233 visits to the survey, and 100 votes collected. Due to limitations of our Zoho membership, the votes stop at 100. The software also mentions there were 17 hidden votes, which we do not have access to due to the limit of 100 votes. Quorum was met.

We need majority in favor “yes” of the proposal for the proposal to pass.


Voting Results:

The total number of votes ZRA had access to was 100. The number of votes to adopt is majority. There were 97 votes in the affirmative. There were 1 votes in the negative. There were 2 abstentions. There is majority in favor and this proposal has been passed.
