Nominations for the NFA Board of Directors

The NFA Bylaws state:

“The incumbent board normally proposes a slate of names for the election of directors to stand for election by the membership to fill vacant positions. In addition, subject to the Regulations under the Act, the board also accepts nominations from the broad membership, and any proposal submitted at least 30 days prior to the annual members’ meeting may include nominations for the election of directors if the proposal is signed by not less than 5 members entitled to vote at the meeting at which the proposal is to be presented.”

The Bylaws also specify that Directors are elected for terms of one, two, or three years. Our Articles of Incorporation specify that we must have 4 to 10 Board Members.

The board normally proposes a slate of candidates for the members to consider for election. Separately from the nominees proposed by the board, NFA Members may also nominate Members for these positions at least 30 days before the Annual General Meeting. Please use this form for the nomination, as it provides for information that we can post on the website to support the nominee. It also requires the signatures of 5 nominating members. The form can be scanned and emailed here.
