Video description and transcript:

Video begins with the NAD logo in red and blue. The NAD logo then transitions to the same logo but in green and peach colors to represent the #NAD2014 Conference theme. Video fades to white then to Larry Evans, NAD Board Member for Region 3, and Jenny Buechner, NAD Board Member for Region 2, in front of a black background.

LARRY: As you prepare for the NAD Conference in Atlanta, some of you may be thinking about running for office on the NAD Board. There are various positions available for those interested, including President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Regional Representatives for Regions 1, 2, 3, and 4. I'll let Jenny explain the process on how to run for a position on the NAD Board.

JENNY: If you're interested in running for a position, there are several things you need to do. First, you must be a member of the NAD for at least 2 years. Second, you must be a member of your State Association or an Organizational Affiliate for at least 2 years. After meeting those two criteria, you can go online and complete the Candidacy form for any of the positions. You can run for one position, or two or three positions. If you are not elected for a position, you can still run for the other position you have applied to run for. You must send in your Candidacy form to the Elections Committee prior to June 3rd. The Elections Committee will then validate whether or not the criteria is met, and then the Committee will contact you confirming you are qualified to run for office. The Elections will take place during the NAD Conference. Larry, would you please share who is on the Elections Committee?

LARRY: The members of the Election Committee include myself as Chair, Jenny as Vice Chair, and then we have Past President Bobbie Beth Scoggins. The three of us will review all potential candidates for office.

JENNY: We look forward to seeing you run for office!
