For over 70 years, the National Braille Association has been guided by a volunteer Board of Directors. It is now time to nominate individuals to fill the upcoming board vacancies that will be available in the Fall of 2017. Those selected to serve in the officer and director positions listed below will be installed at NBA’s Professional Development Conference in October, in Orlando, Florida.

We encourage all members of NBA to become involved in this nominating process by submitting the names of individuals for director positions and by selecting current directors to serve in officer positions.

NBA is seeking nominations for the following positions:

Director
Directors serve a three-year term; an elected director is eligible for a second consecutive term. To be eligible to serve as a director, an individual must be a member in good standing of the Association for at least one year prior to election. An elected director who has served two terms shall be eligible to serve as a director after a lapse of at least a year from the expiration of his or her last term as director. Two director positions need to be filled.

Two current directors’ terms are expiring. Robert Beaton is eligible for another term as a director or an officer position. Carol Greer is eligible for another term as a director or an officer position.

President Elect
The President-Elect will serve a two-year term, will serve as President for two years and will serve as Immediate Past President for two years.  Jan Carroll, whose term as Immediate Past President is expiring, is eligible for another Officer position or a Director position.

Treasurer
The Treasurer will serve a two year term and will be eligible to serve a consecutive two-year term in the same office.  Diane Spence, whose term as Treasurer is expiring, is eligible for another Officer position or a Director position.

To be eligible for the above officer positions, a candidate must be a current director in good standing for at least two years. An officer, upon expiration of his or her second term, shall be eligible for election to another office or as a director.

If you would like to nominate someone for a director or officer position, we invite you to submit their name, a summary of their skills and experience, and their contact information using the form below. All nominations must be received by February 28, 2017.
