NCIL will hold virtual elections for our Governing Board positions this year. NCIL members have an opportunity to nominate an individual to run for each of the following positions on the NCIL Board:

  • Vice President,
  • Secretary,
  • DEAI Chair,
  • Youth Member At-Large,
  • Three Member At-Large positions, and
  • Representatives of Regions 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, & 10

Nominations must be made by a member of NCIL. NCIL members may nominate themselves or someone they know, provided that person has agreed to accept the nomination.

Please carefully review the position descriptions and memorandum, as it will help in considering potential nominees. Also, make sure to share these resources with the individual you are nominating so that they have a clear understanding of what will be expected should they be elected.

Nomination Deadline: May 17, 2024.

  • Article III, Section F (2) of the NCIL SOPs, states that “In order to be eligible to be nominated for an office or position on NCIL’s Governing Board, an individual must: be an individual member of NCIL; be staff, board, or a designated representative of a CIL/SILC member of NCIL; meet all requirements, including past participation experience, as detailed in the appropriate Board position description; and reside within the state of or work for the CIL/SILC member; A regional representative shall reside within the region the individual represents.”
  • All Board member terms are 2 years. Each officer position (President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer) is limited to 2 terms by the same individual. The Youth-At-Large position is limited to 1 term by the same individual. No other board positions are term-limited.
