— Only those shareholders whose names are listed in PHRA’s Stock Transfer Book and who have paid their 2020 season’s annual dues or inactive fee as of seven days prior to the election may vote. The address label on this notice reflects the current Shareholder(s) of Record. If two persons are listed on the Stock Transfer Book as Share- holders of Record, only one may vote in any election or on any matter requiring a shareholder’s vote.
— A Shareholder of Record or a family member of the Shareholder of Record who is over the age of 21 is eligible to become a director, but only after the Shareholder of Record has been a PHRA member for at least one full calendar year.
— Nominations may be made and/or candidacies may be declared up until the slate is closed immediately prior to the vote at the annual meeting.
— PHRA provides a proxy system so that Shareholders of Record who are eligible to vote, but who cannot attend the election, may participate in the annual meeting, the election of directors and the vote on any agenda item. This proxy system allows the shareholder to vote using an approved PHRA Proxy Form by either: (i) executing a General Proxy, where the shareholder designates a family member or another shareholder who is eligible to vote to cast a vote on their behalf at the meeting; or, (ii) executing a Specific Proxy, which is like an absentee ballot and the share- holder makes his or her own selection. Due to the virtual annual meeting, voting by specific proxy is encouraged.
— PHRA’s approved Proxy Form begins on page 13 with the declared candidates listed and any agenda items included. If you are planning to participate in the annual meeting by executing a proxy form, please follow the Proxy Form Instructions on page 12.
If your proxy form does not comply with the instructions, the form will be marked “void” by the Registrar.
