Nominations:

Nominations for office vacancies are developed by a nominations committee consisting of three voting members. The members of the nomination committee are appointed by the President after consultation with the Executive Board.

Nominations are accepted from the floor in July and considered for election/ballot if the nominated member is in good standing and meets the appropriate requirements for the office. Communications of nominations to the membership and election to office are carried out via email.
