Anyone who wants to receive a ballot for the NTA election must be a member prior to May 1st. The best way at this point is via www.nationaltaxidermists.com as we are getting close enough that mail time may be an issue. It would be a shame to miss out on your chance to voice your opinion on the future of the NTA - and what its leadership should represent - because you were a few days late joining~ And please, whatever you do, do NOT vote on name recognition. Get informed. Contact candidates. A number of them have posted their profiles - as in, what they intend to do for the NTA - here on taxi-net. You'll find better information here than in the official bios included in the ballots, unless someone's wife's name or their religious preference is important in your selection of the most qualified candidates.
