PROXY VOTING
If a member of a Chapter is attending the Board meeting to vote on behalf of a Chapter President, he/she must be a member in good standing and have a proxy letter on chapter letterhead signed by the Chapter President to vote. In addition, he/she must fulfill the requirements as noted in the Bylaws (if necessary).

BOARD OF DIRECTORS, 3.9 Board Meetings
3.9.6 A Board member attending a meeting in more than one capacity shall cast one vote only. Cumulative voting is prohibited and Board members other than Chapter Presidents may not appoint a proxy. Chapter Presidents may appoint a proxy if they cannot attend a Board meeting, or they will attend and vote in another capacity. If a Chapter President cannot appoint a proxy he may appoint the Board of Directors of the Chapter as his attorney-in-fact to appoint a proxy. If the proxy is a member of more than one chapter, he must have been a member of the Chapter President’s chapter for at least six months. This shall not apply if the Chapter President’s chapter was chartered in the six months prior to the meeting. The Chapter President or his attorney-in-fact must complete an appointment form and return it to the Secretary. The form will be valid for one month unless it specifies a different period.

Please note that ONLY CHAPTER PRESIDENTS can appoint a proxy. All other positions on the SCI Board cannot appoint a proxy.

Please contact Stephanie Carabeo at (520) 798-4916 or [email protected] to request a sample proxy letter template or if you have any questions regarding proxy voting.
