Nominations Accepted HERE
Esteemed HWNT Members,
As the Chair of the Nominations Committee, I am writing to inform the membership on important decisions that have been made to ensure the continuity, stability and success of our beloved organization.
The HWNT Executive Board has given serious consideration to the need for continuity within our organization during these times of uncertainty with the pandemic. Since our bylaws do not address these types of emergencies, we referenced Roberts Rules of Order for clarification to assist the Executive Board in making the recommendation to board. The 11th edition, Robert' s Rules allows for extensions of Board actions such as delaying elections. In these uncertain times, keeping continuity on the State Board is crucial to the organizations sustainability and success, therefore the Board of Directors has approved to delay our elections for one year.
Although our current HWNT State Board Members have agreed to extend their service, there are still several opportunities available for members to rise into a leadership position within our State Board. The four vacant positions will fulfill the remainder of the 2020 to 2021 term. Therefore, the term for the elected positions begins on January 2021 through December 2021.
Have a great day,
HWNT Immediate Past State Chair
