Election Process

All Board of Director positions are elected by NEAR Members and serve, at minimum, a one-year term, with two/three-year terms as listed. A Nominating Committee of NEAR members is appointed to assist in reviewing nominations and selecting candidates for open board positions. Once candidate research has been conducted and reviewed, a slate of candidates will be provided to the current Board of Directors. When multiple candidates are slated for the same position the Nominating Committee will provide their recommendation to the Board of Directors for the most qualified candidate to fill the position. The Board of Directors will use the Multiple Slate and Nominating Committee recommendations to determine a Single Slate of candidates.

Once a Single Slate of candidates is approved by the current Board of Directors it will be distributed to all NEAR members. The newly elected Board of Directors will be announced at NEAR's Annual Meeting in October. New officers and directors will be officially installed on in December at our Installation & Holiday Celebration event and will take office on January 1, 2020.

All positions are open for nominations, except President (automatic per bylaws).
