There is a regular alternate for each producer and cooperative delegate. In such cases, if a delegate cannot attend a convention, he or she should notify the regular alternate, as well as the NCC and the organization or organizations which selected the delegate and alternate. If neither a delegate nor the designated alternate can attend a given convention, the organization or organizations making the original selections may designate a special alternate for that convention only.
For the ginner, merchant, warehouseman, cottonseed and textile manufacturer Interests, the organization or organizations which selected a delegate who cannot attend a given convention may designate an alternate for that convention only.
Under the NCC’s Bylaws, Interest Organization officials are not eligible to serve either as alternates or delegates, unless they are actively engaged in the business of the Interest.
