CEA Credentials Registration
Will Be Online This Year
Time Left to Register DelegatesOnline credentials registration must be completed by Friday, September 2, 2016 at 11:59:59 PM or it is possible that they may not be able to register any other way.
Who: Lodge Secretaries, as in the past, will have the sole responsibility for completing online credentials registrations.
What: Credentials are used to vote for elected state officers during the Colorado Elks Association State Convention, which will be held at the Denver Marriott South, 10345 Park Meadows Drive, Lone Tree, CO -- September 7-10, 2016.
Each lodge is allowed one (1) delegate per fifty (50) members using your lodge's membership count as of April 1, 2016. Past Exalted Rulers, Past State Presidents and current Elected State Officers will not count against your total delegate count.
When: Online Credentials Registration will be open beginning Monday, August 1 and will remain open through Friday, September 2, 2016. The registration page is at www.coloradoelks.org/secy/credentials.cfm and access is for Lodge Secretaries ONLY.
If a lodge does not register voting credentials online, it is possible that they may not be able to register any other way.
How: Voting Delegates must be registered in two separate groups: Past Exalted Rulers, Past State Presidents and current Elected State Officers will be in one group. If your lodge needs to register more than five (5) of this type of delegate, you must do so in batches. This group is limited only by the number of delegates at this lodge that meet the criteria. Your Lodge Delegates based on membership must be registered in a separate group. This group is limited to one (1) delegate per fifty (50) members using your lodge's membership count as of April 1, 2016. The system will automatically keep track of this. When your Delegates REMAINING Based on Membership reaches zero (0), you will no longer be able to register delegates in this group. These two groups may be registered at the same time, but please be certain to place delegates in the proper group.
