7/1/14: ADS Proxy Vote Procedure
A note from Amanda Horton, Chair, ADS Bylaws and Governance

The annual members’ meeting of the ADS is coming up in September in Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, Maine. If you are unable to attend the meeting (actual meeting on September 27), use the proxy form.

The use of proxies allows the ADS to meet the quorum requirement (100 members) in order to conduct business at the meeting. In addition, the holder of the proxy may cast that member’s vote in the election of the board of directors and other business conducted at the meeting. To use the proxy, fill out the form and designate the name of your agent – typically an ADS member that you know will be in attendance at the meeting. Send the form into the ADS early enough that it will arrive in the office by September 19, 2014. It is also possible for your representative to bring a signed proxy to the meeting and present it to the Secretary, Ann Davis. We encourage you to use the mail-in method to avoid delay at the meeting.

6/24/14: "Top Ten" reasons to attend the ADS Annual Members Meeting and 40th Anniversary Celebration

It’s been featured in the Whip and numerous issues of NewsBits via email. The ADS Facebook and Pinterest pages have been “buzzing” with comments about it. The American Driving Society, Inc. will host its Annual Members Meeting and 40th Anniversary Celebration September 25-28 in beautiful Bar Harbor, Maine at Acadia National Park. As if attending a meeting with over 150 fellow drivers is not reason enough, we have assembled a "Top Ten" to help make attending an easy decision.

Read the "Top Ten" and register to attend!
