Important Officer Elections Update | Aug. 27, 2018

Ballots for the election of officer candidates for the 2018-19 NAPABA Board of Governors will not be distributed today, as previously announced. The NAPABA Nominating & Elections Committee has been reviewing election-related complaints and has determined that additional time is needed to resolve these issues before the voting period may commence. Members will be notified about the updated elections timeline once those decisions are made. In the meantime, the NAPABA Nominating & Elections Committee urges voters to consider the qualifications of each candidate on an individual basis and to refrain from supporting any “slate” or grouping together of candidates, or otherwise choosing candidates on the basis of their affiliations with other candidates, whether those affiliations are actual or by implication.

If you have any questions, you may contact the NAPABA Nominating & Elections Committee Chair George Chen or NAPABA Executive Director Tina Matsuoka
