Nominations will be received from the floor, and only eligible CNU‐MCC members at the time of the election can be nominated.
To be an eligible nominee the nominee is required to be a CNU‐MCC member for a minimum of one previous election cycle leading up to the election being held. (Since terms are for 2 years, this means being a CNU MCC member since the last election 2 years ago.)
Nominations require a supporting CNU‐MCC seconder for a nomination to be placed on the election ballot.
Only eligible CNU‐MCC members are permitted to cast a vote.
