Help us choose the future leadership of RCA! Candidates have been selected for 2018/2019 terms.
Bios are included if the candidate submitted one, and they will be found in this section.

You may vote Online or via paper ballot, but only once.

Vote Online: Watch your email for an electronic ballot in October. Instructions and login information will be included in the ballot email. Full biographies and position statements are available here.
Paper Ballots: Paper ballots will not automatically be sent out this year. If you would prefer to vote via paper ballot, please contact the RCA office at or (952) 928-4651 to request one.

Note: The RCA Board has decided that when voting for directors, members must vote for at least 5 candidates. If a member votes for less than 5 directors, their ballot will not be counted. The reason for this is to prevent skewing the elections in favor of a few candidates.
