As Secretary of the NASW-GA Chapter Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce the preliminary slate for our 2014 Georgia Chapter elections received from the Chapter Committee on Nominations and Leadership Identification (CCNLI).  The CCNLI has certified that the slate meets all of NASW’s affirmative action goals and representational mandates to the best of the Committee’s ability.

Members wishing to have their name added to the ballot in VACANT positions are encouraged to contact their CCNLI Chair or the Chapter Office (see below).  Members wishing to have their name added to the ballot by petition have until May 18, 2014, to submit a petition.  To be successful, a petition for a position elected by the statewide membership must include the signatures and the printed legal names of 2% of the total chapter membership as of January 31, 2014.  For unit level positions, signatures of 2% of the unit membership are required.  Specific unit numbers and official petition forms may be obtained by calling the Chapter Office at 404-525-8047.
