Dear IAWP Members  

See UPDATE below in RED:

There are two important updates for your information.  Please read below.


The 2015 Election package was mailed.  As in previous elections, please read the instructions included with your election package.    There is one addition to the instructions - the label printed with the word “Ballot” was left out of the package.  Therefore, please print the word “Ballot” on a blank envelope:  Mark that envelope with ballot and place in the return envelope.


NEW INSTRUCTION:  PLEASE write USA on the envelope being returned to the Election Chair, Pat Correa.


We just received a message from a member that her postal service wanted the country indicated on the envelope. If you will write USA, your postal service should have no issue in accepting the mailing.




In accordance with the IAWP Constitution, Article IV, Paragraph 7., the Annual General Meeting of Members will take place Wednesday, 26th August 2015, at 2:15pm in the Novello Suite, Motorpoint Arena, Mary Ann Street, Cardiff CF10 2EQ Wales.  All IAWP Members in good standing are invited to attend this important meeting.
