Election Ballot

Voting is held from June 26 through July 3. 

All votes will be done this year via online ballot. An email with a link to the ballot and personalized login credentials will be sent out on June 26. Individual members receive an email to the designated address in their profile, and center members have a designated corporate contact who received an email.

Voting Structure

Each individual or center member is afforded vote(s) commensurate with the UCA level of membership. If you have a center membership, your vote is weighted based on the number of centers in your "organization”. 

The number of votes allocated for an individual or practice is determined by the member type. Pre-opening center, student, and vendor members do not have voting privileges.

Note: Only members in good standing, by the opening day of the election (June 26) are eligible to vote.


UCA is governed by a Board of Directors. Each director serves a three-year term and can serve up to two consecutive terms. Board Officers are elected by the Directors. For a list of the current Board of Directors, click here.
