The deadline for nominations for NSCA National Delegates from each state has been extended by one week due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the additional time needed for prospective candidates to acquire endorsement signatures. Nominations will now be accepted until July 28 at 5 p.m. CDT.
The number of National Delegates from each state is determined by the number of members in that state as of December 31, 2019. You can view the number of positions allocated to each state on the nomination form. The new Delegates will take office on January 1, 2021, and serve through December 31, 2022.
Remember, Executive Council members must first be elected as National Delegates. Three National Delegates from each of the five NSCA regions will be elected to the Executive Council.
You may choose to run for the National Delegate position yourself or nominate another person. However, if you nominate another member, that person must agree to be a candidate. Any candidate/nominee must have the endorsement of five current members of NSCA from the state he or she would represent. The nominee and the five endorsers must sign the nomination form (below) and provide their member numbers. A nomination is not considered valid without those signatures and member numbers.
Only fully-paid, current NSCA members qualify to run for National Delegate; the position is not open to Complimentary Limited Membership (CLM) or Crossfire members (NSSA members registering NSCA targets). Note: Nominees for National Delegate are no longer required to shoot a minimum number of registered targets. Current National Delegates may run for the office again, but they are not automatically placed on the ballot. The nomination / election procedure is the same as for other candidates.
Nominations will be accepted by email or fax. Send nominations to Nicki Bowers, firstname.lastname@example.org, fax 210-688-3014. All nominations must be received by July 28 at 5:00 p.m. CDT. Ballots will be distributed by email during the first week of August for voting via online ballot.
