Officers Nomination Submission Form (Odd Year)

  • ** Scroll all the way down to nominate officers. **
  • This form contains one of the most important tasks you will be requested to participate in as a member of NYSSPE.  It is an opportunity for you to provide the Nominating Committee with recommendations for the future leadership of our Professional Society.  It deserves your prompt, careful and thoughtful consideration and input.
  • Because of your active involvement in the leadership of NYSSPE or its Chapters, I wish to draw on your knowledge for recommendations for candidates for NYSSPE office. A list of the offices for which candidates are sought for the 2016-2017 Administrative Year is shown below. Please review it carefully.
  • If you are personally interested in being considered for an office, please do not hesitate to make your interest known. If you are an incumbent, please state your desire to seek re-election unless, of course, you have served the maximum number of terms allowed by the Constitution.
  • A form requesting detailed biographical information will be sent to all recommended candidates so it is not necessary for you to provide that information when recommending someone. However, it would be helpful to the Committee if you could provide one or two paragraphs outlining why you feel someone is particularly worthy of consideration. Recommended candidates will be asked to submit a narrative in support of their candidacy. They may also be asked to answer questions and provide responses to the Nominating Committee by a date to be determined. Their answers will help the Nominating Committee in their deliberations.
  • Recommendations for candidates must arrive at NYSSPE Headquarters no later than the close of business on November 30, 2015. Earlier submissions will be appreciated. Please use the attached form for your recommendations.
  • Important items for you to remember as you consider candidates for recommendation to the Regional Vice Presidents and Nominating Committee are:
    •  The Nominating Committee cannot nominate any of its members for an office but it can nominate one of its members for continuity. Only one member of the Nominating Committee can be nominated to a second term for continuity.
    • Resignation of a Nominating Committee member, from the Committee, in order to seek nomination to an officership does not make that person eligible for nomination to an officer position.
  • NYSSPE Regional Vice Presidents Composition
  • Seek out your candidates NOW! Submit your recommendations to NYSSPE Headquarters, to my attention, so they arrive by the end of business on Nov. 30th, OR SOONER if possible. They can be emailed to Jennifer Miller at or faxed to 518-283-7495

  • Individuals recommended for consideration will be sent a form, which they are to use for submitting biographical information. Therefore, it is not necessary for you to provide a lot of detailed information. However, you are encouraged to submit a brief summary of why you feel an individual may be particularly qualified for consideration. In the past, such summaries have proven extremely useful to the committee in its deliberations.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
