Dear Colleagues, 

Please note that there are five days left to vote in the 2024 Presidential Election and members must vote before April 2 at noon

If you have not received a ballot, please consider the following:

  1. Check your Junk, Spam, and Unfocused (Other) folders.
  2. Make sure that you have not previously unsubscribed your email address from Simply Voting. If you have, send an email message to resubscribe@simplyvoting.com to resubscribe.
  3. We advise you to add vote@simplyvoting.com to your Safe Senders list (especially if you have not voted with Simply Voting before).

Any member who has not received an electronic ballot should contact me at CRO2024@utfa.org after checking their Junk and Spam folders.

Further, this email is to advise UTFA members of an outage that occurred at 3:35 p.m. today with the email platform, Sendy, that UTFA uses. The outage lasted for about 3.5 hours, and as of 7:00 p.m. this evening, the Sendy platform was restored. 

As per the 2024 UTFA Presidential Election Guidelines, statements from the candidates are to be sent out centrally by UTFA staff using Sendy. Due to today's technical outage, links included in the first email sent by UTFA were unresponsive and the second Candidate Statement could not be sent. In light of the outage, to ensure that both Candidate Statements were sent to the membership as close in time as possible, UTFA staff sent the communication via the Constituency listserv accounts instead of Sendy.

You can find both Candidate Statements on the UTFA Presidential web page.
