The Nominations & Elections Committee shall establish procedures for the conduct of elections. <br />
    ------------------------<br />
    From now through the end of the month of November, open nominations will be taken from the general membership.<br />
    <br />
    Those members that have paid dues for the current year my nominate candidates to stand for election for their own geographic Regional Director, and for the offices of President, Vice President, and Secretary-Treasurer.<br />
    <br />
    The geographic boundaries are listed below to aid you in confirming that any RD you'd like to nominate actually lives in the same region that YOU reside it.<br />

    <br />
    The process is intended to allow any member to nominate 1 Regional Director, and a President, VP and Sec-Treas candidate for each office.<br />
    <br />
    Out of courtesy to those being nominated, please ASK FIRST if they are willing to serve, unless you are nominating yourself for an office, which is allowed.<br />
    <br />
    No one is allowed to stand for election for more than one office, so if anyone is nominated for multiple positions, they will be allowed to choose which office they will stand for election, and any other offices they might be nominated for will have their name removed from the ballot.<br />
    <br />
    Nominations may be made by replying to either or both members of the Nominations and Elections committee, Tim Flight and Bob Steward. You may email either of us through the Contact Us page.
