RTCA Election Announcement
As December approaches, the Executive Committee would like to inform members of a few changes regarding the upcoming RTCA Committee elections.
The main change this year – due to safety concerns during the pandemic – is that the elections will be held online on January 27 and 28, the week after the Inauguration; and the annual meeting will be held on January 29, 2021. This delay allows time for the Executive Committee and the Senate Radio-TV Gallery staff to set up and test the online voting system before using it for January’s election. These changes are specific to this election cycle only and were approved in the November executive committee meeting.
There are two ways to submit nominations this year:
- The traditional way of gathering 12 member signatures on the nominating petition (attached to this email);
- Provide a PDF file of 12 emails of support from members.
Our highest priority is the health and safety of all RTCA members and we hope these changes allow you to participate in the election in a safe manner. We do still plan to host a December meeting and that date will be announced in the coming weeks.
Best wishes and good health to you and your families,
Executive Committee of Correspondents
Radio and Television Correspondents’ Association
