National Election 2020

The national election will take place February 15 – March 15, 2020, to determine the three who will join continuing board members Jill Fedon (who becomes president on October 1), Bill Mathis, Linda Minnotte, and Kyle Webber. You will also be voting on updates to the National Bylaws.

Voting will again be handled through an online ballot system managed by Z2 Systems, the database system that maintains our membership, event registration, etc. The secure system verifies membership, ensures only one vote per member, and locks out back-end ballot access by anyone (even staff and system administrators) during the voting period, preventing any tampering with election results.

2020 Board Candidates

Follow the links in the menu at the right, and you will find the slate of candidates for your national board as well as instructions on the voting procedure. Please take time to read these pages so that you are able to make an informed decision on who will determine the vision and goals for your organization in the coming years.

Each candidate was asked to submit a biographical sketch as well as answers to two specific questions:

1. What is your vision for Handbell Musicians of America?

2. Additionally, what expertise and experience will you bring to the Handbell Musicians of America board of directors?

Update to National Bylaws

Included on the ballot this year is an update to Handbell Musicians of America’s national bylaws. While most of the edits are not substantive, this election cycle creates an opportunity for the Board to go forward with several proposals we have been discussing over the past year.
