Committee Final Report

NOTE: ** = Required Field


**Type of report being submitted: Final Report


**Date: June 20, 2005


**Committee Name: Nominating Committee


**Supervising Board Member: Beth Kraemer


**Chair, Co-Chairs, Assistant Chairs: Michelle Millet


**Committee members: Pennie Howard and Samantha Schmehl



**Goals, Objectives, Projects completed (including, but not limited to, any procedures, tip sheets, checklists, etc. created during the reporting year):


Prepared a slate of candidates for 2005 election, which included the following duties:

           Held online forum and gave candidates a chance to speak in person at Midwinter 2005

           Distributed a listing of NMRT members, in good standing, running for other ALA offices

           Maintained, with the fabulous assistance of the Web Team chair, a Web page with candidate information (for those running for NMRT offices)

           Contacted candidates and confirmed their willingness to run; checked that they were members in good standing; provided candidates with information regarding each office

           Contacted candidates and had them prepare personal statements

           Transferred their personal statements and information to the Web page for candidates

           Prepared the slate of officers for approval at Midwinter

           Distributed slate of candidates to ALA

           Solicited names of NMRT members, in good standing, who are running for other offices in ALA; worked with Kim Sanders to make sure they were NMRT members in good standing, then distributed their names to NMRT members



**Action Items/Issues To Be Resolved What plans/projects remain which will be carried over or postponed until next year? Have there been any substantial changes in plans requiring a reconsideration or cancellation of projects? Information regarding such will be helpful for future chairs and planners.

      The handbook entry still needs to be updated. This is an important task so that dates/deadlines are accurate.

      The NMRT members running for other offices totaled one person. This additional duty of the committee should be monitored for a time/benefit analysis. If, over the next few years, there are few positive efforts gained by this endeavor, it should be discontinued.

      Hopefully web page information can be handled directly by the Committee so that the Web committee is not burdened with a lot of changes in a short amount of time.

      Begin the updating of Nominating Committee Web pages early so that names and contact information can be changed early on in the process.
