Timeline set for 2006-07 officer nomination process

Issue January 2006

By mid-January, MBA President Warren Fitzgerald and newly hired Executive Director Marilyn Wellington will appoint the seven-member Nominating Committee charged with nominating the six officers and the roster of regional delegates to serve a one-year term beginning Sept. 1, 2006. The 2006-07 Nominating Committee must be approved by the current House of Delegates at its Jan. 19 meeting in Weston.

The 13-member committee will present its official nominations in the form of a report to be filed with MBA Secretary Denise Squillante by March 10. MBA members eligible to vote will receive the committee’s report by March 25. Membership has the opportunity to challenge the report by submitted petitions for other nominations. Other nominations for officers have to be filed as petitions signed by 100 members. Likewise, regional delegate nomination petitions are filed in the same manner and require 50 signatures. All petitions should then be filed with Squillante by April 10.
