Spring Proxies

The Spring Conference is one of the two opportunities each Club has to be part of our District Council Meetings.  These meetings are very important to the health of the District, and it is essential that we have a quorum at these meetings.  Every Club has 2 votes on important matters like budgets and elections for district leadership, so make your vote count at the upcoming Business Meeting. 

The Business meeting will be held on Saturday April 26th, at 2PM at the Sheraton Miami Airport.    ALL members are welcome and encouraged to attend. There is no cost to attend this meeting, other than parking.

The President and Vice-President Education of each Club have a vote.  If either one of you will be attending the Business meeting, you may carry both votes for the Club.  If neither of you will be attending, it is very important that you complete the Proxy and send it with a member of the Club (in good standing) who will be attending the Business meeting.  The Proxy can be found here in the District Forms section of this web site.

The proxy and/or the Club Officer attending must visit the Credentials Desk at the Conference BEFORE the Business meeting starts. Please review the opening hours for the Credentials Desk on the website (it will close at 1:30 PM on Saturday). 

A member may only carry proxies for one Club.  If they are also a District Officer, they may carry their District Officer Proxy as well, but not a second Club.

If you have any questions, please contact the Credentials Chair, Samantha O'Neil at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 847-727-9027.
