Nominations & Elections
June Garner and Eleanor Cook, Co-Chairs

The committee is currently reviewing profile packets received from nominees. The ballot will be finalized in January.  This year we are electing a vice president/president-elect and three members at large.

A survey was sent to the membership in October asking people to indicate their preferences on profile packets.  These packets are submitted by nominees who wish to go through the vetting process and contain information about their involvement in NASIG and other professional associations.  Nominees are also asked to include a position statement on issues relevant to the association.  The survey offered three choices: a resume-based packet, a standardized packet, and a hybrid where the resume-based packet is used for the vetting process and a standardized packet is available to members during the voting process.

The survey results indicate that members prefer the hybrid approach.  This will be implemented for the current election cycle.

N&E worked with Bylaws to propose an amendment to the bylaws on the length of the voting period during the election.  In accordance with our bylaws, the Bylaws Committee distributed an announcement regarding the proposal.  Voting will be conducted before the end of 2009.
