It’s time for the election of NSSA Zone Executive Committee representatives. Each of the nine Zones will elect a representative to the Executive Committee.
Terms for the new Executive Committee are two years, beginning November 1, 2012, through October 31, 2014.
The procedure for electing Zone Executive Committee representatives is dictated by the NSSA By-laws:
ARTICLE 7. EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
Sec. 3 – ELECTION
(a) Election by Zones. In even numbered years (and at any time necessary to fill a vacancy) all nine Zones shall elect a representative to the Executive Committee. All terms shall be for two years, subject to Sec. 6 below, or until successors are elected and qualified with the full eligibility for re-election.
(b) Nominations. Nominations for Zone Executive Committee representatives shall be made, in writing, by two of the current Directors from that Zone between June 1st and June 23rd of the election year. These nominations must be received at headquarters by June 30. Voting shall take place at any annual or regular meeting of the Board of Directors or any special meeting of the Board of Directors called for such purpose, and only current Directors from their respective Zones can vote for the Zone Committeeman from their Zone. The nominee who receives the highest number of votes shall be declared elected. In the event of a tie for first place in any Zone, an additional vote of the Directors shall be taken to decide the winner from the Zone. Directors-At-Large shall vote for the Zone Committeeman in the Zone in which the said Director resides.
