Attention Athletes Voting at the 2012 USA Judo Assembly
Athletes who are registered to vote as a voting delegate for a Group A organization also will be able to cast a vote in the athlete Board member/AAC rep election. This ruling follows the same rule interpretation made for coaches/referees.
Attention Coaches Voting at the 2012 USA Judo Assembly
Delegates to the National Assembly voting on behalf of Group A will be able to vote for athlete or coach elections as well, if they are so eligible to vote for those positions. However, the delegate may only vote for one category other than group A. This decision was arrived at, after a few members contacted the National Office requesting that we revisit the original ruling of delegates voting for only one category period.
