Every odd-numbered year, the NASG holds elections for several positions within the NASG's Board of Trustees (BOT). The BOT manages the current state of the NASG and sets the course for the future of the organization.
The three regional Vice-President positions are elected during each of those elections (i.e. 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). The overlap in terms allows for organizational continuation, while elections still allow for gradual changes. Within the NASG board, each of these positions has equal voting power.
Contact person: Election Chairman
We have no term limits, so any incumbent can run for the same or another position. Additionally, any other member of the NASG, in good standing with the organization, is eligible to nominate him- or herself for any of these positions. To nominate yourself, contact the Election Committee Chairman (see e-mail link 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.
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.
Election results are posted on this web site and in the Dispatch as soon as they are available. The successfully-elected candidates will become an active member of the NASG Board of Trustees during the election year's NASG Convention.
The tasks assigned to each NASG Board of Trustee member are described in the NASG's legal documents, links to which are provided below.
