Announcing NWU National, Chapter and Delegate Elections  

It’s time for NWU elections. Later this month you will receive a call for nominations that will include a description of each office and instructions on how to self-nominate for the position of your choice. 

All contested elections will be conducted electronically under the direction and supervision of E-Ballot. They will send out the ballots with the candidates’ ballot statements, collect and count the ballots and announce the winners.

The national officer elections will include President, Financial Secretary/Treasurer, Recording Secretary, 1st VP, 2nd VP, Guide, Sargent-at-Arms and three (3) Trustees. Each chapter will elect a Chair, Financial Secretary and Steering Committee members. The chapters will also elect Delegates. We will also be electing two At-Large members to the National Executive Board, and At-Large delegates.

Candidates for national office must be members-in-good-standing for the past 12 months. Candidates for Chapter and Delegate must be members-in-good-standing.
