Voter Eligibility

Only members in good standing with PIPSC in the NR Group are eligible to vote in their respective regional election and all member-at-large positions. 

Election Activities

Problems have arisen in the past which have caused embarrassment to candidates, some examples of which should be avoided:

  • Use of any Institute membership list for campaign purposes. Contact information contained on the PIPSC Web Site is provided for the sole purpose of allowing members to contact their Institute representatives for employment-related problems or questions. This information may not be used in unsolicited bulk e-mailings.
  • Use of a logo sufficiently similar to the NR Group or the Institute logo as to imply support.

All candidates were invited to submit résumés, of 200 words or less, stating their experience/objectives. The résumés of candidates for the positions you are eligible to vote for can be viewed on the PIPSC Web site when you go to submit your electronic vote.
