2nd NOTICE: SPECIAL ELECTION: Call for Nominations for President-Elect

Posted about 1 year ago by Susan Conaty-Buck

DCNP has an opening for the President-Elect position due to the resignation of the previously elected candidate.  While our bylaws give the Board of Directors the ability to appointment someone to fill this vacancy, our board has chosen to open nominations to allow the full membership to decide who will take on this important role in the life of our organization as we have had such growth since the last election.

DCNP has nearly doubled in size in the last 5 years. Thanks to efforts of the membership, we have created Northern and Southern chapters allowing members easier access to programs and representation of the needs of NPs in the various regions of Delaware.  NPs are gaining recognition as health care healthcare providers who deserve notice when healthcare decisions are made at the state and local level.  The President-Elect plays a key role on the board helping to represent our organization and shaping its future.

Because the term began last spring, the President-elect will serve 18 months as President-elect, transition to President for two year, and then continue on the board as Past-President to provide advice and support to the current President.  Specific years are as follows:

  • President-elect 2018-2020
  • President 2020-2022
  • Past President 2022-2024

Duties of the President Elect include:

  • assumes the duties of the president in the event of his/her temporary absence.
  • assumes the office of the President if that position is vacated.
  • performs other duties as assigned by President.

Nominations for President-elect include:
