will receive a ballot with the Au- gust 2018 issue of Military Offi - cer. Space will be provided on the ballot to write in votes for other MOAA members not on the committee’s slate of nominees. Online voting also will be avail- able. After the election results are validated, new directors will take offi ce Nov. 2. We need highly skilled men


and women in all offi cer grades. Please consider off ering your- self as a candidate, and above all, plan to vote in the upcoming election.
