DIA 2018 Board of Officer’s Nomination Meeting
Where did the time go? It has been four years since the last DIA election for the current board of officers. As required by the DIA Constitution and By-Laws we will have an election in the fall of 2018. All positions on the board are up for election. On October 25, 2018 at 6:30 pm, there will be a general membership meeting for nominations at 100 Centre Street, NY, on the 15th floor in the main jury room.
The positions for trustee, nominated by the floor, shall be nominated only by members employed in that county which the trustee shall represent.
The City-Wide Supervisor Trustee shall be nominated only by members of the rank of Supervising Investigator from any county.
Nominations from the floor for Executive Committee positions require a second. The nominations must be made by a member in good standing.
For a position that does not require a second, such as trustee and City-Wide Supervisor Trustee, a member may nominate himself/herself.
An unopposed candidate shall not have their name appear on a ballot and shall be deemed automatically elected by the unanimous vote of the membership.
