By September 15, the Board shall appoint a nominating committee of three (3) board members who are not Elected Officers for the purpose of selecting candidates for Elected Officer positions for the next term. This committee shall submit a slate of one or more candidates for each Elected Officer position for the next term at the October membership meeting. Nominations from the floor will also be accepted at the October meeting if seconded. If a member of such nominating committee is nominated for an Elected Officer position, he or she shall then resign from the nominating committee. The Secretary shall make all necessary arrangements to inform the members of the names and qualifications of the nominees before the voting begins as noted below.

Such voting shall be accomplished either via ballots at a membership meeting to be held in early November, via ballots published in the Club’s official publication and mailed, or via electronic ballots, or by any combination of those methods, as specified by the Board. Provisions for write-in candidates shall be made and such votes shall be counted so long as the person receiving such a vote is a member in good standing. The voting period will end at noon on November 15. After the voting period, the nominating committee shall examine the votes for validity, determine the candidates receiving the largest number of valid votes and present the results of the voting to the Board at the start of the December meeting for approval.
