CRLA Election Cycle

Summer/Fall – The Election Committee Chair is appointed by the President (typically it is the Past-Past-President). The Chair convenes an Election Committee and solicits nominations from the CRLA membership for open positions.

January – The Election Committee submits to the Board candidates for President-Elect and any other open position, along with letters of interest, letters of institutional support, and verification that candidates have been CRLA members for at least 5 years. Potential candidates for the election must be submitted by the Chair to the CRLA Board of Directors by January 31; the Board votes on the slate at their February meeting.

February/March – Candidate information is posted on the CRLA website and circulated to membership. Voting occurs electronically in March or April; terms begin at the conclusion of the Annual Conference in the fall.
