2020 CANDIDATE INFORMATION

The 2021 Ballot to select the next President Elect, Vice President, and Vice President of Finance will be mailed out the week of January 15th. Please review the Candidate Information carefully so that you are prepared to cast your vote when you receive your email ballot.  Be sure to check your spam and junk file folders if you have not received your ballot.

This system is a secure system and allows us to track respondent IP Addresses to assure that only one ballot per voting member is cast, which protects the integrity of the election process. Vice Presidents serve two year terms, and the President Elect automatically moves to the Presidency the year following their term as President Elect. Only current FRPA members are allowed to vote during this process.
