According to Association bylaws, only eligible voting members can nominate, be nominated, vote or be elected in the annual election of delegates. To participate in the electoral process and other business during the 141st Annual Convention of Delegates, a member must be an eligible voting member and must meet all of the following requirements by 4:30 p.m. CDT on April 5:
