Elections for regional officers are held at the Regional Convention in March of each year, with remaining vacant offices filled at the International Convention Regional Meeting in April. If any vacancies still remain or a seat is vacated after being filled, the Regional Advisory Board selects the new officer(s) from a pool of candidates who apply directly to them.
Active chapter members who are interested in running for a regional office President, Northern Vice President, Central Vice President, Southern Vice President, or Officer-at-Large are encouraged to begin their planning early in order to ensure a smooth election process. Candidates are strongly advised to contact the regional president, coordinator, and/or NERA president for advice early on. The officer(s) currently holding the position of interest can also be valuable resources, as well as past regional officers.

Our regional convention is now under two weeks away — the deadline to register your chapter has been EXTENDED. Please make plans to join us in New Haven, CT at Gateway Community College on March 15-16! The new deadline is this Friday March 8, 2013. Please remember to send the registration form via email to email@example.com and you can mail your check to the address on the form or bring it with you to convention. Please remember that there will be NO on-site registrations as we have to give final numbers to our hotel for food purposes and this can’t be changed after that point.
Also, this deadline will apply for regional officer candidates as well — please encourage a member from your chapter to run for regional office. The region will be covering their registration and lodging to San Jose, CA for the Annual Convention. Applications are due this Friday March 8, 2013.
