Election Survey Deadline Extended to July 7
To all NAHRO Members:
By Diane L. Cohen, Chair, Nominating and Election Committee
The COVID-19 pandemic presented unique challenges to the 2021 biennial campaigns for the election of NAHRO President and Senior Vice President. In that uncertain and rapidly evolving environment, the Nominating and Election Committee (N&E), which has oversight responsibility for NAHRO’s elections, received various questions and comments from members regarding campaign rules and processes. This past October, NAHRO’s Board of Governors adopted a resolution directing the N&E to “…complete a review and analysis of election reform(.)”
As the N&E begins that important undertaking, the Committee would like to hear from you. NAHRO members please submit your comments related to the issues that were called to our attention, specifically:
- Public Announcements
E. Exposure of Candidates by National NAHRO (2) website; (3) print media; (4) social media
Please examine the Guidelines and share your thoughts, experiences and recommendations for improving, streamlining, and clarifying the above provisions.
While those are the areas of particular focus for the N&E’s work, we also welcome your comments on other provisions in the Guidelines.
Comments are due by Thursday, July 7 and must be submitted via the fillable form here.
Finally, and on a related note, NAHRO encourages all Associates and Allied Individual members to consider seeking the office of President or Senior Vice President. Members who express their intent prior the National Conference and Exhibition in San Diego (Sept. 22-24) will be invited to publicly announce their candidacy at the conference. Watch for details in upcoming issues of the NAHRO Monitor and Direct News.
The N&E values your comments and concerns, and I look forward to hearing from you.
