Electing Regional Directors

Per the National Council Bylaws and Board policies, Regional Directors are elected for a 3-year term and may serve no more than two (2) complete 3-year terms in succession. (See Bylaws Article IV, Section 5.) Regional Directors should be, but are not required to be, from different states in each respective region.

The twenty (20) Regional Directors are elected directly by the voting members in each of the ten National Council regions. The Nominating Committee of the National Council Board will direct the process for electing Regional Directors. Regional Directors must be affiliated with a National Council voting member, and may be either a staff person, or a member of its Board. Factors for considering potential nominees for Regional Directors should include: the ability and desire of any nominee to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of the Board of Directors and public policy and advocacy responsibilities for Directors as set forth by the Board Policies & Procedures.
