A violation of these rules could result in a code of ethics inquiry and/or a candidate’s disqualification. All voting members (planners and suppliers) on the official election roster will be sent an electronic ballot on Wednesday, February 23, 2022. The election ends on March 1, 2022 at 5:00 pm Eastern time.
