NESTA members elect our Regional and National Officers for two-year terms in cycles.
During one election cycle, we select from candidates for President-Elect; Secretary; Treasurer; Regional Directors for the East Central, Eastern, Mid-Atlantic, New England, Northwest, and Southeastern Regions.
In the alternate election cycle, we select from candidates for the Central, Far West, New York, North Central, South Central, and Southwest Regions.
The President-Elect automatically becomes the President, and the President then becomes the Past-President.
The President-Elect chairs the Nomination and Election Committee. S/he usually puts out a call for candidates in the fall. Any member in good standing can run for elected office. Of course, only a member residing within a Region can run for election as that Regional Director.
Whenever possible, we seek at least two candidates for each position. Elections are conducted electronically.
