The NLMA Nominating Committee will verify in a report to the Board of Directors whether or not nominees meet the criteria for standing in an election process.

If more than one President-elect nomination is received, the NLMA will hold a general election via online secret ballot. If only one candidate comes forward, that candidate will be declared elected by acclamation. In the absence of any candidates, vacancies will be filled by recruitment, in keeping with the principle of equity.
