Message From Your Senior Regent
It’s February 2020! That means it’s time to start looking towards next year and selecting new officers.
Every Chapter is required by the General Laws to hold an election of officers in March of each year. The elected officers of the Chapter consist of: Senior Regent, Junior Regent, Secretary/Treasurer and Recorder. The election of officers is important because Chapter members are electing the co-workers who will lead the Chapter for the ensuing year.
The nomination and election of officers shall be scheduled as follows:
Second Meeting in January: Announce date, time and place of first, second and third Nominating Committee meetings, as well as names of coworkers serving on Nominating Committee. Ask co-workers to submit names for consideration. First two (2) weeks in February (prior to the 15th): First Nominating Committee meeting.February 15 or after: Second and third Nominating Committee meetings.
All Nominating Committee meetings shall be announced at a chapter meeting prior to date held. Meetings shall be held prior to the first meeting in March when the final slate of nominees is read.
Committee Activity Night in March: Final slate of Nominees read to chapter.Second Meeting in March: Election (two weeks later) Installation shall be held anytime in April
The Nominating Committee is probably one of the most important committees of the Chapter. The success of the Chapter depends to a great extent on this committee nominating good officer candidates for election by the membership. Members of the Nominating Committee should not consider this duty lightly. Careful evaluation should be given to individual qualifications (with particular emphasis on leadership ability), and the willingness of each individual to contribute her time and effort to the best interests of the Chapter.
The Nominating Committee is composed of the following 13 co-workers:
The current Board of Officers (5) of the Chapter. Three (3) Past Regents in their order of juniority by service in that Chapter.Five (5) members of the Chapter to be appointed by the Senior Regent, who are either appointed officers, committee chairmen or Past Regents
The Nominating Committee's primary responsibility is to select at least one (1) qualified member for each of the elective offices to be filled. Any nomination must be based upon the member's qualifications, her desire to run for office and her availability to serve. The committee may nominate more than one (1) member for a particular office for the membership's consideration.
Only Chapter members, whose dues are paid and are in good standing, may be considered for an elective office. To be an elected officer of a Chapter, the prospective officer must be a member of the Chapter in which she is seeking office. A member is not eligible for any elected office unless her membership in the Chapter in which she seeks office is equal to or exceeds six (6) months preceding the date of the election.
Any member desiring to run for an elective office shall submit her name to the Nominating Committee prior to the start of the Nominating Committee meeting.
(Suggested format for submitting name for consideration by the Nominating Committee)
(Include first, middle (and/or nickname) and last name)
