Everyone is invited and encouraged to contact any members of the Nominating Committee with suggestions for nominations (see enclosed list of Committee members).  Since the Committee will begin its deliberations in the very near future, you are encouraged to submit your suggestions as soon as conveniently possible, but no later than December 31.

Please take a moment to think of potential candidates and list them below.  Individuals should not be hesitant to suggest themselves for any position.  Please return them directly to Melissa Nicoletti at the address listed below.  The Committee, of course, will make the final selection of candidates.

The duties of the president and vice-presidents are set forth in the CBA Bylaws, the Policy and Procedure Manual, and in the REFOCUS 20/20 Plan which reads: “Future officers of the CBA are expected to implement this plan and keep the CBA strategically focused.  The nominating committee is directed to consider these as it nominates officers.”

We sincerely appreciate your past interest and hope either you or someone you know is willing to serve your association in a leadership capacity.
