The branch election of officers and at-large members will take place at our November general membership meeting. Therefore, we wanted to remind members of the timeline of associated events and activities that will occur prior to the elections.
August - November - Reminders and notices will be forwarded to members informing them of the September and October meetings and the November elections, location and time.
September - The Nomination Committee is selected at the September general membership meeting. The Nomination Committee is responsible for establishing the “slate” for officers and at-large members for the 2019 – 2020 term. The Nomination Committee consists of no less than 5 and not more than 15 members. There can be no more than two (2) current Executive Committee members on this committee. Any current branch member can volunteer to participate on this committee.
The Nomination Committee Chair will determine future meetings of the Committee to determine the Slate which consists of: President, VP (1,2,3), Secretary, Asst Secretary, Treasurer, Asst Treasurer, and At-Large Members. There can be only one nominee for each position, decided by the Nomination Committee. All nominees must be a member of the Fairfax County NAACP branch prior to April 1, 2018, have agreed to run for the position being nominated for, and have signed a nomination form.
