Deadline Extended for Board of Director Nominations, Central and West Regions

Due to a disappointing lack of nominations for both the Central and West regions, we are re-opening our nomination process for a period of one week in order to find great regional leaders who will actively participate. This will include the reopening of the nominations for the two elected Board of Directors seats. Nominations will close at 12pm (Eastern Time) on Nov. 15, 2016.

The regional chair positions are three-year terms. The elected Regional Chairs will appoint their Associate Regional Chairs, as well as local grassroots leaders in metro areas with high membership concentration.

Additionally, the two seats on the Board of Directors also carry three year terms.

I want to encourage anyone who’s expressed an interest in volunteering and doing more to help the organization to bring your ideas and energy to a leadership position.

Members will be able to vote online for these positions at nppa.org from November 15 through November 30, 2016. Candidate bios and statements will be posted on Nov. 15, so that members may make informed votes.

NPPA members interested in running for any of these offices may nominate themselves by contacting NPPA secretary Seth Gitner immediately at  [email protected] Members may also nominate others.

To be eligible for election to the Board of Directors, a member must be an NPPA Professional or Student Member in good standing. To be eligible for election or appointment to a regional office, a member must be an NPPA Professional or Life Member in good standing in that region. For more information or questions, contact Gitner.

Sincerely,

Melissa Lyttle  

NPPA President
