Nominating Committee

Nominating Committee Members (two-year term)

The nominating committee has four elected members, with two members elected each year to serve a two-year term. The nominating committee holds an organizational meeting at the annual conference and meets by conference call regularly to carry on the committee’s business and to develop a slate of candidates for each election.
