2020 Nominees for Executive Council, Court of Adjudication and Board of Regents Announced

The 2020 Nominating Committee presents the candidates named below for positions to be elected at the August Mission Convocation. We believe that all the individuals named are qualified and would do well in their service if elected.

You will see that we are in need of additional candidates. We especially need candidates for the Board of Regents.  As you faithfully consider candidates for nomination, please know that not every business meeting will be held in-person and require travel.  Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all recent NALC meetings have been held only online.

Any delegate to the 2020 NALC Mission Convocation may nominate additional candidates for Executive Council, Court of Adjudication or Board of Regents. Delegates are encouraged to submit such nominations as soon as possible to allow the nominees time to submit the required biographical information to the Nominating Committee. Additional nominations must be submitted to the Nominating Committee by June 19. For more information, visit thenalc.org/nominate.
