Community Partner

Directed by the NAEOP Board, the nominating committee is not soliciting nominations at this time for the Community Partner Position due to anticipated changes in the job description of the Community Partner. It is anticipated that a proposal for changes to the bi-laws for the Community Partner position will be presented to the NAEOP membership on October 19th.

This is an exciting opportunity not only to serve the region but also for professional development.  The term of office begins at the conclusion of the 2016 NAEOP conference in Boise, ID on October 19. The newly elected officers should plan to attend the NAEOP Board Meeting October 14th – 15 in Boise.

Each year NAEOP membership elects a new slate of officers for installation during the annual conference. The board is currently structured as follows:

  • President
  • President-Elect
  • Past President
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Community Partner Chair
  • Government Relations
  • Parliamentarian
  • Friends of NAEOP
  • Alaska
  • Oregon
  • Idaho
  • Washington

Election of these positions is staggered to avoid having a completely new board.  For this reason we accept nominations according to the following schedule:

Even years: President-Elect, Treasurer, Community Partner Chair
Odd years: President-Elect, Secretary

All NAEOP members will have a chance to vote on the “at-large” positions of President-Elect, Secretary, Treasurer and Community Partner Chair. State Officers are the duly elected presidents of their respective states and not voted on by the NAEOP membership as per by-law changes in December 2007. All four State Presidents in the region serve on the Council’s board and travel to meetings in December, May, and September. Government Relations and Parliamentarian are appointed to the board.

Please consider leadership positions in NAEOP. The rewards are great, and you’ll gain an inside understanding of how NAEOP, COE, and the Department of Education work. You are strongly encouraged to nominate yourself for a position. The experience will broaden your perspective in TRIO and allow you even greater opportunity to effect changes in our region. All candidates must have their statements sent in advance to the Chair of the Nominations Committee (the Past President) for online elections.
