2023 Board of Elections
Montana Chapter Members
Meet the Ballot Candidates
Overview of the Election Process
The Montana Chapter conducts Board of Directors elections each summer to fill positions that will become vacant on June 30. Student Representative members hold office for one year, so these positions are included in each election cycle. Most other Board positions are two-year terms, and the terms of these members are staggered so that approximately one-half become vacant each year. The Board President serves a two-year term, after serving one year as President-Elect. The position of the President-Elect is filled with appropriate timing so that the President-Elect will serve at the same time as the President is serving his or her second year in office.
The Executive Committee serves to develop a slate of candidates for elections and, in conjunction with Chapter staff, oversees the conduct of the election process each year. The Montana Chapter follows the NASW Chapter Standards for Nominations and Elections in its development of the slate of candidates for and the conduct of all Chapter elections. After nominations close, all eligible nominees will be put on the ballot and member voting will take place in early June to fill vacancies by July 1.
