Doing so will put you on the inside track for:

  • The vote for Officers of the NRB Executive Committee, as well as the Board of Directors Class of 2016 (if you are a full member in good standing).
  • Reports from NRB Board Chairman Rich Bott and NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright.
  • Important updates from NRB’s Senior Vice President & General Counsel Craig Parshall regarding current/future legal issues that may affect Christian broadcasters.

Voters who are pre-registered will get to avoid potentially long lines at the Annual Business Meeting. Pre-registration also ensures that we will have enough materials and ballots on hand. Your organization’s dues must be current in order to be eligible to vote and designated voters must be present at the Business Meeting to receive their ballot package. Proxy votes are not accepted. The number of votes allowed for each full member organization is determined by Article VI – Voting Constituency – of the NRB Constitution and Bylaws.
