Board Nominations


Guest Bill Doherty

Recommended Posts

Our association (homeowners) has for the last 30 years held nominations at a board meeting prior to the Annual Meeting. Owners present will nominate their preference for board members. Those nominated must indicate if they accept. This year the board has sent a letter to all owners asking anyone interested to send in a " self nomination letter" designed by the board. All who apply will be on the ballot for vote at the annual meeting. Question is this procedure legal or should past method be used?? Thank for you help.

This does not conform to Robert's Rules of Order.

Neither.

Follow Robert's Rules of Order.

Nominations should take place at a meeting of the association, not a meeting of the board. The board should have nothing to do with the election of its members.

And while it's not improper to nominate oneself, it's not typical. Much better to be nominated by someone else who thinks you'll make a good officer. And it's certainly improper for the board to mandate self-nomination.
