2019 PAMLA Election Information

The time has come for our annual PAMLA elections for new officers of our Executive Committee. If you are current with your PAMLA membership, you should have received an emailed ballot (it will say "Survey," but click on it--it is your ballot) to vote for new officers. Your PAMLA Executive Committee is the body that makes major decisions regarding PAMLA on a day-to-day basis. They help to plan the association’s future so that we may continue to serve our members’ needs. We require your assistance in choosing the best officers possible.
