Proxy Voting

The ability to assign a Proxy for voting at the 2022 National Council has now ended.

In accordance with the RNZRSA bylaws any Full, Affiliate or Life Member wishing to assign a proxy was required to notify the RNZRSA Chief Executive of the identity of their proxy carrier(s) no later than four weeks before the Council meeting (being 20 September 2022). This date has now passed and any vote made by an unregistered Proxy will be considered void.

Full, Affiliate or Life Members who cannot attend National Council in person but failed to register a Proxy to vote on their behalf, still have the opportunity to attend the National Council online. Registrations are open until 26 September. 

The process for Proxy voting is outlined in the Standing Orders for National Council.
