Voting within TCDA - how timely!
The Board of Directors is bringing before the voting membership consideration in allowing Retired members of TCDA to also cast their vote. This would be a constitutional change and therefore requires a referendum. Please click here to cast your vote as to whether or not Retired members may be included in the future voting membership of TCDA. This referendum will be open for voting through midnight December 31, 2016. Active members and Past Presidents are eligible to vote.
