Every year at our Summer Convention meeting, NABO delegates have an election of officers.  Nominations can be for yourself or someone else (but you might want to confirm that the other person is willing to serve so that time & energy isn't wasted. 

Current Officers & Chairpersons

Nominations should be sent to Nancy Trevino ( ) by July 10, 2009 then she will send all delegates (who have submitted her their email address) a copy of the nominations to review for the Convention meeting on July 25th.  Include there:

Their Name and Club    
What position they are interested in running for
Why they are running 
What have they done for NABO
Their vision for the future

President & Treasurer.  Once a year at our annual Convention (Summer) meeting NABO delegates elect (or re-elect) the President and Treasurer to a one year term. It is requested that prior to the meeting that the candidate (either self-nominated or nominated by someone else) submit a brief explanation as to why they are seeking the office so as to better inform the voters (e.g., allowing delegates the time to consult their clubs/organizations about the vote).  Nevertheless, nominations can be taken from the floor the day of the meeting, at which time a brief explanation is requested.  The request of submitting something beforehand is a courtesy for the voting NABO delegates.

Vice-President(s).  There is one automatic vice-president: the previous NABO president.  There is no vote on this position.  But NABO bylaws allows for numerous vice-presidents as the delegates shall decide.  The additional vice-president(s) should also be nominated and state their intent to be a candidate.  Again, the request to provide prior notice is a courtesy to the voting NABO delegates.

Committee chairpersons. The President appoints the various chairpersons to a one-year term. 

Facilitator.  Nominations are collected and voted upon by all the delegates at the Fall meeting; the term of service runs from January through December.  Click on Facilitator Application
