Nominations for this group are accepted in even numbered years through September, with balloting starting in the winter of that year with the publication of the Winter Waybill and ending January 31st of the following year.
2) The election of 4 Directors at Large. Nominations for this group are accepted in odd years through September, with balloting starting in the winter of that year with the publication of the Winter Waybill and ending January 31st of the following year.


Nominations: The nominating Petition Deadline Is September 12
There are two ways that your name can be placed on the ballot. The first is by recommendation of the Nominating Committee and approval of the Board of Directors. To be considered by the Nominating Committee (Chairman Steve Studley of the Central Indiana Division or Paul Mangan of the South Central Wisconsin Division), you must submit a biography/candidate’s statement of 200 words or less and a 2x2, passport-style photo to the Committee as soon as possible, but no later than September 12 of the appropriate year.

The preferred method of delivery is electronic mail. (While e-mail is not required to serve on the Board, it is highly desirable since the Board conducts pre and post meeting activity by e-mail.) If you do not have e-mail, you may mail your bio/photo to Bob McGeever, the Region Secretary. He will convert it to an electronic format and send it to the Committee. Addresses and e-mail addresses for the Committee and the Secretary are on the Board of Directors page of the Region website:
http://www.mwr-nmra.org/mwr2016/mwr.regofficers.html


The second method is by petition signed by at least ten (10) current NMRA members who live in the Midwest Region. The petition form is available on the Region website at:
http://www.mwr-nmra.org/mwr2016/mwr-images/admin/nominatingpetiongeneric.pdf

or it may be requested from Steve Studley or Paul Mangan. Your petition must be accompanied by a biography/candidate’s statement of 200 words or less and a 2x2, passport-style photo. It must be received by Steve or Paul no later than September 12 deadline. They will convert it to an electronic format and forward it to the Committee.

The Committee will submit its recommendations and the names of all resident members nominated by petition to the Board of Directors for review and approval during its next meeting. Each candidate’s biography/statement & photo and a ballot will be included in the Winter issue of the Waybill. The results of the election will be announced during the next Annual Meeting of Members.

If you have any questions about this process, please feel free to contact any member of the Committee or the Secretary. — Steve Studley
