- One on one personalized email communication is allowed by a candidate or by others on behalf of a candidate, expressing their perspectives (not those of others).
- Candidates may not contact Sections and Chapters for the purpose of advertising or endorsing their candidacy. Additionally, they may not encourage or promote the use of surrogates to campaign on their behalf.
- Candidates may attend District, Section, and Chapter meetings during the time period of their candidacy. Candidates may present on matters unrelated to their candidacy.
