Per the DPROA Constitution, the following positions will be open for election during February 2024. The election will take place over a 21-day voting cycle, starting in February. The election winner of each position will take office on Wednesday, March 13, 2024, at the regularly scheduled monthly General Membership meeting. The three positions up for election are:
VICE PRESIDENT * TREASURER * DIRECTOR PLACE 2
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 three identified offices. If a single individual files a candidacy form for a board position and is unopposed by another candidate, that person will take office in March 2024 without the need for an election to that office.
Candidates for office must complete a Candidate Application form as will be made available on the DPROA website (You can access this form by clicking HERE) or by contacting Secretary Ken Seguin at [email protected] (214-724-7155), and submit a photo copy of his/her Honorably Retired ID Card (as may be applicable).

Additionally, any Full-Active member in good standing can nominate a candidate for any announced position on the Executive Board at the January 10, 2024 General Membership meeting. The person being nominated must be a Full-Active member in good standing and be present at the meeting and accept the nomination when presented. The nominee must also submit a Candidate Application form by the conclusion of the meeting.
For contested board positions, Candidate Application forms with a copy of ID Card (as applicable) will be posted on the DPROA website on/about January 11, 2024, in advance of the February 2024 election so that they may be reviewed by the General Membership.
The duties of each office are specified in Article VI of the DPROA Constitution, available for review on the DPROA website. Candidates should familiarize themselves with the duties and responsibilities for the office he/she may be seeking.
