NARGS 2013 ELECTION TIMETABLE In this issue of the Quarterly there is a call for nominations for the 2013 election of Officers and Directors (see page 250). This election will, for the first time, enable NARGS members to vote by email. This will open up the process so that all members have a full opportunity to participate. Obviously, the timetable for the election has had to be modified and it is outlined below. Details of the voting process will be published in the Winter 2012/2013 Quarterly. TIMETABLE September 1, 2012 – Nominations close (details on page 250). October 15, 2012 – Nominating Committee will post the slate of candidates recommended by them on the NARGS website. There will then be an opportunity for candidates "from the floor" to come forward. Nominations for from-the-floor candidates should be submitted with documentation (bio, picture & letter agreeing to run) to the Nominating Committee by a deadline of November 1, 2012. The combined list (of recommended slate, and from-the floor nominations) will be published in the Winter 2012/2013 issue of the Quarterly (dispatched late December 2012). A detailed description of the voting process will also be published in that issue. February 1-15, 2013 – Election.
