(i) NAGAP Bylaws, Article VI, Section A, Number 2 – The Elections committee shall solicit nominees for NAGAP officer positions from the voting membership and present a slate of candidates for election to the Governing Board.
(ii) The Past President office is vacant; James Crane will not be running for office and therefore serving as chair of this committee presents no conflict of interest.
(iii) NAGAP Strategic Plan, Key Focus Area 1: Governance and Leadership – We will improve governance and promote leadership through a regular review of bylaws. We will extend the board governance tools or processes to all subgroups and Chapters. We will identify new talent and cultivate it for future leaders.
