Inside PRSM: March 7, 2018
The PRSM Board of Director election is now underway and all primary PRSM members are encouraged to vote! Only the primary member from each member company may vote in the election.
Primary members received an email Tuesday that included a link to the voting site. Due to changes on the current Board, the ballot has changed and even if the primary member voted previously, they will need to re-vote. Primary members need to vote for two retail candidates and two supplier candidates. Voting will continue until Monday, March 19. To learn more about the candidates, click here.
