A reminder that officer and director candidate nominations are now being accepted by the NAPSLO Nominating Committee to assist in developing the slate of officers and directors to be voted on at the Annual Business Meeting at the 2007 NAPSLO Annual Convention in New Orleans.
NAPSLO members must submit the names for consideration for director or officer nominees no later than August 21 but members are encouraged to submit names as soon as possible. Suggested candidate names may be submitted to the committee by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org (mailto:email@example.com); by postal mail to the NAPSLO office; or directly to members of the committee.
The Nominating Committee is chaired by Past President Mac Wesson and members of the committee are E.G. Lassiter, RSUI Group, Inc.; Maureen Caviston, Partners Specialty Group; Letha Heaton, Evanston Insurance Co.; and Matt Nichols, All Risks, Ltd. As required by the Association's Bylaws, the Nominating Committee will prepare slates of officer and director nominees and submit them to the NAPSLO membership at least 30 days prior to the Annual Business Meeting, scheduled for October 5.
Members will vote at the Annual Business Meeting on the slate of officers (President, Vice President, Secretary, & Treasurer) who serve one year terms, and the slate of five directors, who serve three year terms. Candidates suggested for officer consideration must be currently serving on the NAPSLO Board. Directors currently serving on the Board are eligible to be renominated to new three year terms as directors.
Characteristics the Nominating Committee considers in director and officer candidates include: integrity; personal character; willingness and ability to devote considerable time to the Association; ability to serve three to 10 years on the Board; a history of service to the industry, including NAPSLO committee work, involvement in state associations, active involvement in NAPSLO meetings or the NAPSLO schools; leadership role in own organization; leadership in the industry.
