NACDL's elected positions include its officers, directly elected directors, and affiliate representatives to the board of directors.

About NACDL Elections

NACDL conducts annual elections for various officer and Board positions. Each year, NACDL elects approximately one-third of the Board of Directors. Directors serve three-year terms and may serve two consecutive full terms. Each year NACDL also elects a Secretary, Second and First Vice President, and President Elect. After a one-year term, the President Elect automatically becomes President. Finally, NACDL elects a Treasurer to a two-year term every other year. The Treasurer is ineligible to run for any Board or Director office during that term.

Periodically NACDL conducts special elections to fill positions left vacant. All elections and election candidates are subject to the provisions of the NACDL bylaws regarding elections and to the board-adopted standing board policy on elections.

NACDL Special Election Notice

NACDL’s Board of Directors will fill two vacancies at its 2021 Fall Meeting: the position of Treasurer, and a vacant Director position. Both positions are for terms expiring at the 2022 Annual Meeting. The Board of Directors will elect candidates upon nomination by the Nominating Committee.

Information on procedures, deadlines, etc., will be posted on this page in early August.
