The NER Extended Board Appointment Process

1) Candidates submit their statement of interest to the NER-AMTA President.

2) The President will review the pool of candidates for each position and select the person that is best suited for the position.

3) The President will then present the name of the nominee to the NER-AMTA Executive Board, along with their statement of interest.

4) The NER-AMTA Executive Board will then vote to affirm the President’s choice for the appointment. If affirmed, the nominee selected is confirmed to the committee/position.
