[Ed. note: Highlights from the January committee report to the Executive Board.]

Gail Julian, Chair

Nominations were due by October 12, 2007.   A total of 65 names were submitted.

Vice President/President-Elect:  38 nominations for 19 individuals
Member at Large: 100 nominations for 55 individuals

Some persons received multiple nominations, and some were nominated for both VP/PE and MAL.  Five persons could not be considered because they are members of the N&E Committee or were not current NASIG members. 

The Committee divided the remaining 60 names and contacted the nominees first by email and then by phone to gauge continued interest.  Of the 17 remaining nominees for VP/PE, three originally agreed to continue the review process;  however, one of the three later reconsidered, leaving two nominees for  that position.  Of the 52 remaining nominees for Member at Large, 24 agreed to continue the review.

Completed profiles were due by November 12, 2007.  After reviewing the completed profile and reference forms, the Committee met via conference call to discuss qualifications.  The Committee opted to check references on both remaining VP/PE nominees and on eight of the MAL nominees.  During the week of January 7, 2008, the Committee plans to meet via conference call to discuss reference checks and to set the slate.  Once the slate has been reviewed by the Board and the nominees notified, we will announce the slate to the general membership and put out the call for petition candidates, hopefully, by January 14, 2008.
