At the January 10, 2018 meeting, the GSRMA Board of Directors approved the candidate district list for the 2018 GSRMA Board election. The election will be conducted from February 1, through April 20, 2018. There are three open positions on the Board, one for the Cemetery Districts, one for the Cities, and one for the School District. Only Members of these district types may vote in this election.

Each district will get one vote for their district type (i.e. cemetery districts will only vote for one cemetery district position, and Cities will only vote for one City position). There is only one candidate from the School District, so it is not necessary for them to continue with this process. The vote will either be by board action or by the district representative (usually the District Manager or primary contact person) as authorized by the District board. Members may vote either electronically, via USPS or fax. A ballot and additional instructions will be sent to each cemetery and city Member agencies.

The following is a list of candidate districts for the open positions:

Cemetery District:

Atascadero Cemetery District

Fair Oaks Cemetery District

Russian River Cemetery District

Madera Cemetery District

Orland Cemetery District

Shasta Valley Cemetery District

Sylvan Cemetery District

Chowchilla Cemetery District


City of Dorris

City of Orland

During the election period, nominated districts may contact districts in their peer group to promote their desire to appoint a representative to the GSRMA board.
