(1) Topic deadline: Friendly reminder that the deadline for voting on the topic closes at 11:59 PM CDT, May 11, 2020. The ballot is available here:

(2) Dues extensions: 2019-2020 CEDA dues must be paid to vote. If your program has faced budget freezes due to COVID-19 or other budget stressors and you have paid previous dues, you will likely be approved for an extension to the dues deadline date.
