Officers and directors are elected at each annual meeting in August. Officers serve a one-year term. Board terms are two years and may be renewed for up to four consecutive two-year terms. Time served as an officer does not count against the number of years one may consecutively serve as a board member. After four consecutive board terms, an individual is ineligible for election until a full year has elapsed.
Each member organization is encouraged to nominate someone to the board. Click the link below for a nomination form:
A nominating committee reviews the openings and nominations and prepares a slate, keeping in mind NCWBA’s goals of diversity in geography, size of member organizations, ethnicity and life experience.
Board members are expected to attend three in-person board meetings a year and to participate actively in committee work. Committees typically meet by telephone. Two of the in-person board meetings are held in conjunction with the ABA Annual and Midyear Meetings.
