Washington, DC, April 6, 2016 - NAEM is assembling a governance committee to oversee the process of electing a new Board of Directors for the 2017-2018 term.
According to the association’s bylaws, elections to the Board of Directors take place every two years. The candidates are selected from a pool of nominations by a governance committee, composed of members of the Board of Regents.
To serve as an officer of the Board, the nominee must be a member of the NAEM Board of Regents. The three officer positions available in the upcoming term are: Second Vice President and Treasurer.
The committee will also seek nominations for between five and eight ‘Directors at large’, who represent both corporate and individual members of the association. Those who are interested in this position may nominate themselves or submit the name of someone they think would be an asset to NAEM’s leadership.
The proposed slate will then be presented to the Board of Regents for a vote in October 2016. If approved, the new Board of Directors then assumes their responsibilities on January 1 of the coming year.
Nominations for the Board of Directors will close on June 3.
