Approximately one year before each National Convention, the Fraternity solicits letters from the membership at large naming possible nominees for the offices of National President, National Vice President, Committeeman-at-Large and National Collegiate Representative. Nominations for these positions for the 2009-2012 triennium are currently being sought.
The nominations process allows the Nominating Committee to consider the opinions of a wide range of brothers regarding who should lead the Fraternity during the coming triennium. Once the Nominating Committee selects the official slate of nominees, other brothers interested in these positions may be nominated from the floor by any National Assembly delegate (national officer, province governor, or collegiate province representative).
The Nominating Committee will meet in November to determine the official slate of nominees for consideration at the 2009 National Convention. Nomineesï¿½ names and biographies will appear in Spring 2009 in both The Red & Black and The Sinfonian.
Article IV, Section Two of the National Constitution defines the eligibility requirements for these four offices. The three other National Executive Committee positions are not nominated by the Nominating Committee.
To submit a nomination, send a typewritten, formal letter to the Nominating Committee by November 1, 2008 (postmark deadline). Include in the letter the nomineeï¿½s name, address, telephone number, email address and a description of his qualifications. Mail the letter to the following address (please note that e-mail nominations will not be accepted):
