ELIGIBILITY FOR CANDIDACY AND RULES FOR CAMPAIGNING:
Candidates, if elected as state officers, will become voting members of the NCJCL Executive Board. Officers must attend 4 yearly Executive Board meetings occurring in May, September, January and March, as well as the NCJCL Fall Forum and State Convention. The quarterly board meetings are held in various locations across the state or on Zoom. Lastly, certain officers must attend the 2024 National Convention at University of Tennessee Knoxville. Officers may receive financial packets for National Convention if necessary.
State of emergency:
Should a State of Emergency (when less than two candidates apply to run for a particular office) occur, sponsors will have the opportunity to file a prospective candidate for that office. Please note that sponsors may still only file one candidate per office and a total of 3 candidates per chapter overall by the State of Emergency deadline. Please email the parliamentarian if you have any questions.
