This form is no longer valid.
Please see messages in the Announcement and Stickey section on voting suggestions.


[color=crimson]PLEASE NOTE: This is for the year 2011; you can use it for 2012 as well, but please read the last post in this thread.[/color]

We strongly recommend using the on-line method if possible as this is the only way you will receive confirmation of your vote. Online Voting is available "only" when WorldMark by Wyndham makes it available and not until then.

Assign your proxy to: WM Owners, Inc.


VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE

2011: We have been informed by WorldMark that the telephone number on the on-line and printed ballots is NOT a mandatory field. Both the online tabulation system and the mailed proxy tabulation system accept proxies if this field is left blank. Proxies will STILL BE VALID even if the phone number field is left blank, but its inclusion will help expedite the election process. (WM Owners, Inc. is known to both the WorldMark, The Club Board of Directors and BNY Mellon, the company that processes and tabulates the votes.)

WM Owners, Inc. is pleased to announce that it will continue to serve as a proxy holder for WorldMark, the Club annual elections. Several years ago Wyndham made changes to the way proxy votes are cast, making it very difficult for an individual proxy holder. The change to WM Owners Inc holding the proxies instead of an individual will give us several benefits:
  • Holding the proxies as a corporation reduces the pressure on any one individual to attend the annual meeting and cast the proxy votes in person. A designated representative will still be required to attend the meeting, but that designated individual could be changed as necessary.
  • WM Owners, Inc. is an organization of dedicated WorldMark Owners committed to: Supporting Owner Advocacy, Promoting Education, Encouraging Open Communication, and Creating Community. In short, we exist to help owners. If you entrust your proxy to WM Owners, Inc., you will ensure that your vote will be cast for the good of the owners as a whole, eliminating the risk of votes being cast according to an individual's personal interest.
  • We have some resources for tracking and verifying the proxies, but please remember, we are still an all-volunteer organization, and all of our funding comes from the donations of owners like you.
Attached at the bottom of this message is the new WM Owners, Inc. proxy assignment form. Even if you have previously assigned your proxy to Philip Abdouch, Marci Tribe, or Jim Pappas, we along with Philip, Marci, and Jim urge you to consider re-assigning to WM Owners, Inc. Thank you for your support.

Instructions below:


There are several ways to assign your proxy: use the ballot you receive in the mail; use the on-line system; use the attached proxy form and mail or fax it.

Remember, if you assign your proxy and vote, your ballot will be voted by the proxy holder as you have directed by your vote. You are still voting, but choosing a proxy agent will allow that agent to vote for you on any other matter that comes before the membership for a vote. You may override your proxy at any time simply by casting your own vote and not assigning a proxy holder.

Proxy Assignment (whether by mail or online) -

Do not vote for any candidates for director

Check the 3-year proxy assignment option

Specify the proxy agent of your choice - We recommend WM Owners, Inc.

If mailing, sign and date your ballot and return it in the envelope provided. BOTH owners must sign.

Again, we strongly recommend using the on-line method if possible as this is the only way you will receive confirmation of your vote. We request that you forward that confirmation to wmproxies@gmail.com. Please include with that email the name(s) of the owner(s) on the account, the account number, and the number of annual credits for that account. This will allow us to track and confirm the receipt and accurate recording of your proxy and vote.


If you wish to vote your own ballot (whether by mail for online)

Fill out your THREE choices for director.

Check the 3-year proxy assignment option. UNLESS CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE, THIS YEAR, LIKE THE LAST THREE YEARS, EVEN IF YOU VOTE YOUR BALLOT YOU MUST ASSIGN A PROXY OR YOUR PROXY DEFAULTS TO THE WORLDMARK BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

Specify the proxy agent of your choice - Again, we recommend WMOwners, Inc.

If mailing, sign and date your ballot and return it in the envelope provided. BOTH owners must sign.

Once again, we strongly recommend using the on-line method if possible as this is the only way you will receive confirmation of your vote. We request that you forward that confirmation to wmproxies@gmail.com. Please include with that email the name(s) of the owner(s) on the account, the account number, and the number of annual credits for that account. This will allow us to track and confirm the receipt and accurate recording of your proxy and vote.


INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING THE ATTACHED PROXY FORM

The attached form may be filled out by hand, or may be used as a fill-in form. To enter data onto the form, TAB to the first field, enter the text, then tab to the next field. Follow through to the end of the form. You can fill in the dates for the signature line this same way, but you must sign the form in order to be a valid proxy. Print the form, then sign it. Remember, if there is more than one owner on the account, both owners must sign.

If you fill the form out by hand, CLEARLY enter the data, being certain to include the correct 11-digit WorldMark Owner Number. If there are two names on the account, both owners must sign. Please also be sure to enter the dates corresponding to the signatures.

Send the completed form to one of the following addresses:

    WM Owners, Inc. Proxy Drive
    PO Box 3184
    Salem, OR 97302
    or
    FAX to 1-888-211-1548 or

    email to wmproxies@gmail.com

Remember that sending in a proxy form does NOT prevent you from casting your own vote(s) in any WorldMark election if you so choose. A vote cast directly by you will simply override this proxy form. A vote along with a proxy assignment requires that the proxy holder vote that ballot EXACTLY AS YOU HAVE DIRECTED, so assigning a proxy does not give away your right to choose.

We have not seen any new instructions yet for the election year 2011. At this time, we believe that you can use this form.

As usual, however, we strongly suggest that you vote on-line and get a confirmation of how you voted. If you then send it to the email listed on the form, WM Owners can track the proxies that it has collected.

Remember, only by voting in a block can we have real influence on the outcome of the election.

This advice is still good. If/when we hear anything new we'll let you know.

The attached proxy form for online voting is for 2011. In 2012 there are only two(2) Candidates.
Still, it can be filled in much the same.
It is filled in the recommended way.
Thanks for your patience. Please feel free to ask questions.
We will get the answers asap. With an all volunteer support team, we aren't always as quick as we'd like, but we will get back to you.

We are in the process of updating the 2012 Ballot/Proxy. We will get it posted before too long. Allow at least 24 hours. We've seen it for the first time today. Thanks.
