June Garner, N&E Co-Chair

The NASIG Board has asked the Nominations & Elections Committee to review the nomination and election procedures currently in place and to make recommendations on how the system might be improved.  N&E would like your input.  What, if anything, would you like to see changed in the current nomination and election procedures?  Briefly, the current process includes the following steps:

  1. Nominations are sought.
  2. N&E members contact nominees to ascertain their interest in standing for nomination.
  3. People who are willing to stand for nomination submit a resume, the names of three references, and a position statement.
  4. N&E members contact references, read all nominee information, and select who will be on the ballot.
  5. Messages containing a secure link to the ballot are distributed to qualified NASIG members.

Additional information on the election process may be found at http://nasig.org/about_elections_process.cfm.

One possible revision centers on the notion of an open election.  That is, everyone nominated for an office would be on the ballot.  The committee would ensure that each nominee is a NASIG member in good standing and that his or her nominee profile packet is complete.

What are your concerns, questions, or comments regarding the way NASIG conducts its annual election?  Email your comments to June Garner (jgarner@library.msstate.edu).  See the related discussion on the NASIG discussion forums:
