Leadership Opportunities - Nominating Committee


General regions elect two Nominating Committee members, one representing law school members and one representing employer members, to serve one-year terms. Each limited region elects one Nominating Committee member - who may be either a school or employer member - to serve a one-year term.

All elected Nominating Committee members shall have a minimum of three years of experience within the industry or experience as a NALP Section, Committee, Team, Task Force, or Group chair or vice-chair. Member employees are eligible to run for the Nominating Committee provided they have not served on the Nominating Committee at any time in the three years prior to the election.

Each Nominating Committee member:

  • Attends a training session during the summer/fall (1-2 nights) and the slating meeting during the winter (2-3 nights) (Cost of travel is covered by NALP.)  Note that the practicality of in person meetings will depend on the then-current health and safety guidelines.
  • Solicits nominations for all NALP elected positions and slates members for officer and director positions, and serves as a resource to nominees as they consider their nomination and complete their application.
  • Manages the nomination and election process for Conference Planning Coordinators, Regional Representatives, and Nominating Committee positions.
  • Attends the Annual Education Conference during the term of office April 8-11, 2025 (Cleveland, OH).

The Nominating Committee also produces two articles for the NALP Bulletin+ informing and educating the membership on topics related to NALP's election and nomination process. Committee members may be invited to participate in developing and presenting conference programs on how members can attain leadership roles in the association.

NOTE: Members of the Nominating Committee are not eligible for positions that are elected or slated during their term of office.
