The Executive Council will meet at the end of March to nominate one individual for the position of President-Elect Designate. When the nominee has been selected by the Executive Council, an announcement will be disseminated to all active members of the NSBA. Any member from the designated counties may submit a petition (signed by 25 active bar members) to run against the nominee of the Executive Council. If no petition is filed within 30 days of the announcement of the nominee, he or she is declared as President-Elect Designate for 2021-2022. If a petition is filed, electronic ballots will be sent. This is a four-year term. The President-Elect Designate automatically succeeds to the position of President-elect, and then President. They then serve on the Executive Council for a year as Past President.
