Article I -- Procedures

Roberts Rules of Order, Revised, shall be the authority on all questions of procedure not specifically stated in the Constitution.

Article II - Election of State Officers and NSASSP Executive Board Members

Election of state officers shall be by ballot with a minimum of two (2) nominees for each position. Any active member of the Association in good standing is eligible to hold office.

In the appropriate year, each regional president will bring forth his/her nominee for President-elect-elect to the February Executive Board meeting. Commencing with the election in March of 1999, the slate of nominees for President-elect will come from regions III, IV, or V. In March of 2000, the slate of nominees will be comprised of middle school principals from any region. (Note: a middle school principal is defined as a person who spends the majority of his/;her time in the middle school environment, some combination of grades 5 through 9.) In March of 2001, the slate of nominees will come from regions I and/or II. This rotation will repeat. Each eligible region will be allowed one nominee. The nominee is to be determined within the region by a procedure established within that region. At the February Executive Board meeting, the region president shall bring the nominee's name and an accompanying resume in order for the nominee to be officially placed on the state-wide ballot. 

The ballots for the election of state officers will be distributed to all voting members on the first Wednesday of March by the NCSA office. Ballots must be returned within fourteen (14) days and any delinquent ballots will not be counted. Elected officers will be notified within seven (7) days after close of balloting by the NCSA Executive Director.

No member shall be permitted to seek or otherwise be nominated for and hold the Office of NSASSP President-elect more than once in the lifetime of such member.  Nothing in this section shall be construed to prevent a member from seeking or otherwise being nominated for the Office of NSASSP President-elect after an unsuccessful bid or bids for such office.  

Terms of all regional officers shall coincide with the terms of state officers.

All vacancies among regional officers shall be filled by the respective region. The vacancy of any state officer (Past-President, President, President-Elect, Secretary) shall be filled by the Executive Board. The Past-President appointment in case of a vacancy must be a former Past-President of NSASSP.
