The 2014 NELA Executive Board election is fast approaching. The Nominating Committee had assembled an outstanding slate of candidates eager to serve on the NELA Executive Board.
However, the slate cannot be considered final until the membership has been given the opportunity to bring forth candidates by petition. In accordance with the NELA Bylaws, Article VIII, Section 1c, “further nominations, except for the office of president, may be made by written petition of 25 personal members of the Association in good standing. Such petitions, accompanied by written acceptances of the nominees, must be filed with the Library Association Administrator not later than July 15.”
Once the slate is closed, ballots will be send out to the membership for voting. If you have any questions about the petition process, please feel free to contact Bob Scheier, Library Association Administrator, for more information.
