NASG Elections

Every odd-numbered year, the NASG holds elections for several positions within the NASG's Board of Trustees. The three Vice President positions are elected during each of those elections (serving two-year terms). Every other election, either the President and Treasurer are elected, or the Executive Vice President and Secretary are elected (all serving four-year terms). Within the NASG board, each of these positions has equal voting power.

For this year's election, the Executive Vice President, Secretary, and three regional Vice Presidential positions are up for election. Those currently holding those positions can indicate that they would like to run again.

Who Can Run?
Additionally, any member of the NASG in good standing with the organization is eligible to nominate him- or herself for any of these positions. The nominations for the 2019 election have been received. However, nominations can now be taken for the 2021 election. To nominate yourself, contact the Election Committee Chairman (see above) with your intention to nominate yourself for a particular position. Members are also allowed to nominate another NASG member, but be sure to get that other member's permission first.

Nomination Requirements
The Election Chairman will be able to provide you with more details, but generally a less-than-200-word description of why you want to run and, perhaps, your qualifications is generally needed. This text will likely be printed on the ballot or in the Dispatch for the general membership to read when voting.

Elections
For the 2019 elections, the general membership should have received the ballots in the March/April 2019 issue of the Dispatch. If you did not get one, contact the Dispatch editor immediately. The deadline for the voting ballot submission will be indicated on the ballot.

Contact Dispatch Editor: Bill Pyper

Inauguration
Election results will be posted on this web site and in the Dispatch. The successfully-elected candidates will become an active member of the NASG Board of Trustees during the election year's NASG Convention (i.e. the 2019 NASG Convention).
