Nominations and Elections
The membership elects directors during the Convention to ensure the directions set by the general membership are carried forward. The Executive also provides the direction to the AVICC between Conventions.
Positions Open To Nominations
The following positions are open for nomination annually:
|President||Director At Large (3 positions)|
|First Vice President||Electoral Area Representative|
|Second Vice President|
Nomination Process And Qualifications For Office
A candidate must be nominated by two elected officials of an AVICC local government member and the candidate must be an elected official of an AVICC member. A nomination and consent form should be used for all nominations. Nominations should be forwarded to the Chair of the Nominating Committee by the identified deadline (last Friday of February typically). In 2014, the nominations deadline is Monday, February 23.
Review by the Nominating Committee
It is part of the duties of the Nominating Committee to review the credentials of each candidate. A Report on Nominations including, at the candidate’s option, a photo and 300-word biography will be prepared under the direction of the Nominating Committee and distributed in the AVICC Pre-Convention Newsletter.
Nominating Candidates Off the Convention Floor
The nomination process outlined above does not impact the process where candidates can be nominated off the floor at the Convention. That process remains in place.
