The election winner of each position will take office on Wednesday, March 10, 2021, at the regularly scheduled monthly General Membership meeting at the DPA Building. The positions up for election are:

Any Full-Active member of the DPROA (as defined in the Constitution) who is in good standing and current on dues payment is eligible for election to any of the four identified offices.
