The NAISA election process is underway with the opening of the nominations process. The Nominations Committee will be accepting nominations from Thursday November 5, 2015 until Thursday December 3rd, 2015. The Committee will take these recommendations under advisement as we assemble a full slate of candidates for the ballot that, to the best of our abilities, represents the geographic and interdisciplinary breadth of the association membership.
This year the NAISA membership will be electing a President-elect, a Secretary, two members for Council, and two members for the Nominations Committee (full role descriptions below). Please follow parameters below to nominate a colleague, or yourself, for one of these six leadership positions. Self-nominations are strongly encouraged!

Any member of NAISA may participate in the nominations process. As a young organization, NAISA absolutely relies on its membership to take an active role in the elections process. The NAISA officers play a critical role to ensure the day-to-day needs of the organization are met, and they contribute to the longevity of the organization. Your participation in the election process provides a vital service to NAISA and is greatly appreciated.
On behalf of the Nominations Committee, Thank You!
