To State Board Chairs/Presidents; Executive Directors; Delegates and Associates:

On behalf of the NASBA Nominating Committee, we are asking boards to submit their recommendations for next year’s Nominating Committee Members, Directors at Large and Regional Directors. If you are interested in one of these positions, please contact your board’s Chair or Executive Director, as all recommendations must come from the board.


At the 2010 Regional Meetings, designated voting representatives of states in the Pacific, Central, Southeast and Middle Atlantic Regions will select an elected member and an alternate member (in the event the elected member cannot serve) to serve on the Nominating Committee from 2010 to 2012.

As provided in the NASBA Bylaws, Nominating Committee members may serve two complete terms in succession plus any unexpired term, but upon completion of the aforementioned terms, must wait two years before being able to serve again. No elected member of the Nominating Committee shall be eligible for election or appointment to any position on the Board of Directors through the entirety of his or her elected term and one year thereafter.

Additionally, please note that Regions are responsible for electing their Nominating Committee representative. If a Region cannot successfully elect a nominee, the Region will not have representation on the Nominating Committee. Therefore, we urge you to give this matter high priority.


The Board of Directors is composed of a Chair, Vice Chair, Past Chair, nine Directors-at-Large and a Regional Director from each of the eight Regions. Director at Large are elected for a three-year term and may serve a maximum of two terms, plus any unexpired terms. Thus, three of the nine Directors at Large will be elected at the 2010 Annual Meeting.

Regional Directors are elected for one-year terms and may serve a maximum of three terms. All Regional Directors must be Delegates of their state board of accountancy at the time of or within six months prior to their election or appointment. Thus, all of the Regional Directors will be elected at the 2010 Annual Meeting.

The deadline for receiving these nominations is Friday, May 14, 2010. Please send your letter of recommendation(s) AND the individual’s biographical information to Thomas J. Sadler, Nominating Committee Chair, via mail to NASBA, 150 Fourth Avenue North, Suite 700, Nashville, TN 37219 via fax to 615-880-4291 or via e-mail to:

Sincerely yours,
Thomas J. Sadler, CPA
Chair, NASBA Nominating Committee
