A Notice for SFWA members about Nebula Voting (and here I’m nicking directly text from SFWA’s site):

From March 1, 2012, to March 30, 2012, 11:59pm PDT, SFWA Active members may vote on the final ballot for the 2011 Nebula Awards (presented 2012), the Ray Bradbury Award for Outstanding Dramatic Presentation, and the Andre Norton Award for Outstanding Young Adult Science Fiction or Fantasy Book.

Voting is open from March 1 to March 30, 11:59pm PDT.  The final ballot is available here, and paper ballots may be requested before March 15, 2012, by contacting nac@sfwa.org.  Active and Lifetime Active members will receive an email containing instructions on accessing the ballot.

The Nebula Award rules are available here.

We are pleased to announce that, for the first time, SFWA is offering Active and Lifetime Active members a Nebula Voter Packet containing the nominated works in electronic and paper format. This is an initiative we hope to continue through the coming years. Information on accessing this will be contained with the voting information.

For assistance with the Nebula Voter Packet, please contact Kate Kligman at  NebulaAwards@sfwa.org.

I’m gonna take a moment here and give a note of appreciation to all the SFWA volunteers who have given their time and effort into working on the Nebulas to this point — SFWA is built on volunteer effort and they have really been making a difference here. They make me proud to be the genial figurehead at the top of the organization.

Comments off, per my standard practice regarding SFWA announcements on this site.
