Nominations for NAFA elections open August 1.

Elections this year will be for Board of Directors (3 positions), Executive Director, Judge of the Year, Clyde Moore Memorial Hall of Fame (up to 2 inductees) and regional MVPs. All nominations must be received no later than September 30, 2013, and may be submitted no earlier than the August 1 opening date. Election results will be announced at the Annual General Meeting in Denver, Colorado January 18, 2014.

Please note that among the changes to the rulebook for 2013 is the requirement that nominees for the Clyde Moore Memorial Hall of Fame must not have earned NAFA points within 18 months of the close of the nominating period. For the upcoming election, this means that the nominees may not have earned points subsequent to March 31, 2012.
