NARN hosts an annual membership meeting where members can vote on board elections. You must be a NARN member to vote. NARN members will have paid their minimum $25 annual membership dues. You may pay your dues at the annual meeting. Become a member.
At the annual board meeting, ballots will be available at 10:30 AM. Voting will end promptly at 11:30 AM. You do not need to be present for the entire meeting to vote, but you must submit your ballot between 10:30 and 11:30 AM at the meeting for it to be counted.
If you are interested in running for a seat on the board, please contact
narnboard |at| narn |dot| org
so we can put your name on the ballot. We highly recommend that you submit a short statement about yourself (1-2 paragraphs) and an optional photo to post on our website for members to view in advance of the elections.
The NARN board meets once a month to briefly cover status on campaigns, tasks, and other issues. Responsibilities include managing assets (such as bank accounts), communication with members and the public (via website, e-newsletter, telephone, and letters), coordinating volunteers, maintaining relationships with other organizations, and a host of small but important tasks such as ordering literature, filing paperwork, coordinating meetings, etc. In short, it is the responsibility of the NARN board to handle the less glamorous aspects of running the organization so that member participation can happen easily and effectively.
Board members agree to take on tasks according to their individual skills, preferences, and time constraints. Many board members choose to coordinate campaigns and outreach efforts, though this is not a requirement. Board members serve for two years.
