Board Candidacy & Nominations

2018-2019 Board Candidacy and Nominations Process

Every year NACM seeks well-qualified and eager candidates for available positions on the NACM Board.  This year the Nominations Committee seeks applications for six board positions that will be filled at the annual conference this summer.

In 2018, candidates will be accepted for the following positions:
·         President Elect            
·         Vice President
·         Secretary/Treasurer
·         Director 2018-2021 (three vacant positions)
 

Please read the information below carefully.

Again this year, NACM members at large may nominate other members for board positions. Members who are nominated for Board positions will be notified of their nominations and will have a period of time during which they can decide whether to file a Declaration of Candidacy. Members may still self-nominate themselves for board positions by filing a Declaration of Candidacy.

The process for screening of applicants will include the use of supplemental questions posed to the nominees, review of applications, telephone interviews, and other evaluation measures. Through this enhanced screening process, the Nominations Committee will identify “finalists” for in-person interviews to be held on Sunday, July 22 prior to the annual conference.

All candidates are encouraged to view NACM video on becoming a board member.
