NAGC Special Election for President Elect

NAGC also seeks nominations for the President-Elect, to serve out the vacancy created when Glen Thomas was sworn in as President on November 15, 2012. The President-Elect serves as the President's deputy and performs all duties of the President in the President's absence. He or she succeeds the President when the President's term expires. The President-Elect is responsible for collecting officer reports for Board of Directors meetings and assumes other activities assigned by the President. To qualify for President-Elect, a candidate must have previous service as a member of the Board of Directors. The President-Elect term will expire in the spring of 2014 during the 2014 Communications School when he or she assumes the office of the President.

The response deadline is November 30, 2012. Elections will be conducted online December 3-14, 2012.
