Election to the Executive Committee
According to CSBA’s Bylaws (Article V, Section 3), a Nominating Committee interviews and nominates candidates for the offices of vice president and president-elect. The Nominating Committee consists of members of the Delegate Assembly. The committee receives the nominations of candidates and screens candidates based on the qualifications outlined in the Executive Committees roles and responsibilities.
The election process for the Executive Committee takes place between the spring and fall of each year. Members are notified of when the election process begins.
