Hey everybody who's a regular, full-fledged professional (not support  
or student) member of the JJA -- (especially OFFICERS and BOARD  
MEMBERS, I mean you!) --

  NOW IS THE TIME to get your nominations ballot for the 11th annual  
JJA Jazz Awards in, to jjaballot2007 at yahoo.com. The polling place is  
due to close tonight! But we have decided to extend the deadline  
until the end of the weekend, March 4 at 12 midnight.

Below I have pasted in the ballot, which asks for up to 5 nominees in  
each category. Please cut and paste it into the body of a new email,  
put your name at the top, fill in as much as you're comfortable  
about, include nominees for the A Team Awards (for advocates,  
activists, altruists, aiders and abettors of jazz) -- and send that e- 
mail (and that e-mail only! other messages won't be read!) to  
jjaballot2007 at yahoo.com.

Please do it now. Now! Or very next thing -- !

Information on the JJA Jazz Awards events tentative scheduled for New  
York City, Los Angeles and the Bay Area in June-July will be  
forthcoming. So will the results of these nomination ballots, which  
will end up selecting 5 nominees  in each category to be finalists,
