Fall Memo from the Nominating and Elections Committee
Happy fall, NSNA Members!
My name is Emily Davis and I am the Southern Election Area Representative for the Nominating and Elections Committee. The NEC has been busy making preparations for the 35th MidYear Career Planning Conference coming up on November 2-5, 2017 in San Diego, CA. Registration is now open and we look forward to meeting many of you there. We will have numerous opportunities to talk with potential candidates and explain more about the election process throughout the conference. Whether currently serving at the local or state level within this organization, I hope that you will consider running for a national office position. There are many ways to pursue leadership development as a nursing student, and we would love to talk with you more about what that might look like as a candidate for national office.
What is the role of the Nominating and Elections Committee?
Members of the Nominating and Elections Committee are elected by the House of Delegates to seek out candidates for national office and to present a slate of nominees for all elected positions of the association. The committee also oversees the campaigning at the convention. The committee's function is a vital one, and its sole responsibility. There are four members of the Nominating and Elections Committee, including the chairperson, who is elected from among the committee members by the House of Delegates. The chairperson directs the work of the committee so that it will properly fulfill its assignment. The Nominating and Elections Committee reports to the House of Delegates.
