Officers and members of the Board of Directors shall be elected by the voting membership at the annual meeting according to the procedures as described in Article VII of By-Laws, with the commencement of the term of office to take place during the annual conference. Terms of office shall be staggered so that, as close as possible, one-third of the Board, excluding the President, Vice-President and the Immediate Past President, are elected each year. No member of the Board of Directors shall be eligible to be elected to serve more than three consecutive three-year terms or a total of 12 consecutive years on the Board regardless of position.
All members of the Board of Directors are asked to act as responsible and prudent stewards of the organization and are tasked with ensuring that the organization does the best work possible in pursuit of its goals. Each member of the Board is therefore asked to sign a commitment outlining their responsibilities as a member of the NACOLE Board of Directors. A copy of this Statement of Commitement may be found below in the list of election materials. All candidates are encouraged to read this statement prior to submitting their declaration of candidacy so that they may have a clear understanding of what will be expected and to ensure that they will be able to fulfill their commitment as a member of the NACOLE Board of Directors.
Only regular members in accordance with the Bylaws who have been a member in good standing for one (1) year, whose dues are fully paid at the time that he/she files a declaration of intent to stand for election, and who have attended at least one (1) of the two previous national conferences shall be eligible for election as an Officer or to the Board of Directors. Any organizational member who seeks election to office must hold his/her organization’s voting membership.
Declarations for Election to Office
The Election Committee shall receive declarations of candidates and pertinent background information for each position in the regular election of Officers and Board of Directors. Members may file for no more than one position.
