Next, click on the 'Edit Club Information' link, and log in with your APPA login information. If you cannot find your team's information, please e-mail us and we will get it for you.
Once logged in, visit the 'NCPA Voting' tab. You will be shown the list of current nominees; select your school's vote and click 'Submit Club Vote'. If no options are displayed to vote for, that means there are currently no people running for board members for your region. You should consider running!
