Our Mission.

The Ballot Prep Committee (BPC) oversees the Proposal and Ballot process – educating the fellowship, calling for proposals, offering feedback, drafting analysis with the Board, encouraging translations, compiling a Ballot, eliciting the vote and comments, and tallying and announcing the results.

Presently our membership includes: Rene A. (MA), Mary Jo L. (IL), and Brad L. (MD).
