Need candidate

 

Chapter bylaws require the announcement of a preliminary slate so all members have an opportunity to nominate candidates. The slate is subject to change by petition.

THE PETITION PROCESS: The petition process allows members to add their name to the slate by submitting a petition to the CCNLI within 30 days of the announcement.

For a statewide petition, the petition must include signatures from at least 5% of the total number of Chapter members. Of that total, 5% must come from each of a majority of regions in the Chapter. For a branch position, the petition must include signatures representing 5% of the total number of members listed in that region.

The CCNLI must verify that petition signers are members of the Association, the Chapter, and in the case of branch positions, the appropriate branch. The CCNLI must verify that the petition contains the number of eligible signatures required for the specific position for which it has been submitted. The deadline for petitions to be received in the Chapter office is April 15, 2017.

For more information about this process or if you have any other questions please contact the NASW WI NLI Chair Emily Kenney at emilyjanekenney@gmail.com or Marc Herstand at the NASW WI office at 608-257-6334 or marcherstand@naswwi.org.
