Default When is 2018 Golden Era balloting

Any news on 2018 Golden Era ballots? I've looked around online, and from what I can tell, the committee votes every 3 years; the last inductions were in 2012 (with voting conducted in 2011) and 2015 (with voting conducted in 2014)

Shouldn't the Golden Era Committee already have voted in 2017, for 2018 induction?

Have they discontinued this committee?

Four separate electorates considered by era will create a single composite ballot of managers, umpires, executives and long-retired players on rotating basis, with the Today's Game Committee candidates to be considered at the 2016 Winter Meetings for induction in 2017 and again at the 2018 Winter Meetings for induction in 2019; the Modern Baseball Committee candidates to be considered at the 2017 Winter Meetings for induction in 2018 and again at the 2019 Winter Meetings for induction in 2020; and the Golden Days and Early Baseball committees candidates to be considered at the 2020 Winter Meetings for induction in 2021. The cycle then repeats with the Today's Game and Modern Baseball committees each meeting twice every five years, the Golden Days Committee meeting once every five years and the Early Baseball Committee meeting once every 10 years.

Thanks. I found this as well - they must have changed the procedure for Golden Era and changed the name of the committee to Golden Days; the Golden Committee had originally been every 3 years (2012, 2015) and several articles (including latest Wikipedia entry as of my initial post) still said it would be every 3 years...
