The BPAA's Annual Membership Meeting is scheduled for Monday, June 19, 2017, at 10:30 AM CT at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, in Nashville, Tennessee, at which time members will vote. This notice serves per BPAA bylaws, as official notification to membership, the names of all qualified persons who have been nominated by the Nominating Committee to serve as At-Large Directors being published to the Regular Members at least ninety (90) days before the Annual Meeting.
Per BPAA bylaws, At-large Director candidates must be an owner, partner, officer, director, or management employee of a Regular Member; however, they need not have a proprietary interest in the Regular Member's business in order to be eligible to serve as an At-Large Director. Officer candidates (and Regional Directors) must have a minimum of a five percent (5%) equity ownership interest in a Regular Member's business (a "Proprietary Interest") in order to be eligible to serve as an Officer or Regional Director of the Association.
A provision of BPAA bylaws allow individuals interested in an officer or at-large director position to submit an application outside the nominating process and allows for their name to be on the ballot. The bylaw states such applications must be received at least 60 days before the annual meeting-April 20, 2017.
