Dear NABJ Members:
It's election time!
The filing deadline for anyone seeking election to the NABJ Board of Directors for the 2015-2017/2015-2018 terms is 5 p.m. ET
on Tuesday, April 7, 2015
. Packets must be sent to the NABJ Office, ATTN: Elections Committee, 1100 Knight Hall, Suite 3100, College Park, MD 20742.
The Elections Committee urges all members to consider seeking an office on the 14-member Board. Voting will take place on July 1-August 7
online and during the 2015 NABJ Convention and Career Fair in Minneapolis.
Due to amendments to the NABJ Constitution, ratified by the membership at our 2014 convention in Boston, there are new membership categories
in the organization and new positions on the board of directors
. There also is a new structure for the board of directors reflecting fewer regions across the country; the addition of vice president-digital and academic representative positions; and staggered terms. I encourage you to review this information and familiarize yourself with the new board structure and voting guidelines.
Lifetime and Professional members may vote for and seek the offices of president, vice president-print, vice president-boradcast, vice president-digital, secretary, treasurer, parliamentarian and regional director. Emerging Professional, and Alumni members may vote for the above listed offices, but may not seek any office on the board of directors. Media-related, academic, and student members may only vote for and seek the office of their respective representative.
Please find below the official timeline for members seeking office for the 2015-2017/2015-2018 term:
