Midwest Region Election Notice

and Election Process

2021 election of the MWR President, Vice President and 3 Directors at Large. The MWR polls have closed January 31, 2021.

Nominations: 2021 Nominating Petition Deadline Is September 12, 2020
In 2021 we will elect a President, Vice President and three (3) Directors-at-Large.
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, 2020.

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:

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:

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, 2020. 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
