Nominating committees to identify NDSA director candidates
Members encouraged to help in process, volunteer to serve 
NDSA President Warren Zenker of Gackle has appointed more than 40 NDSA members to serve on the 2017 District Nominating Committees. The committees are required to nominate candidates from their district to run for the NDSA Board of Directors during the association's 88th Annual Convention & Trade Show set for Sept. 21-23 in Fargo. Nominations will also be accepted from the floor during convention. Zenker encourages members to consider who they would like to represent them on the board and to offer those suggestions to committee members, either by telephone or during the Spring Roundups, where committee chairmen will be gathering the recommendations. Those wishing to serve are also encouraged to step forward for consideration.
"Being an NDSA director is an important responsibility and a tremendous opportunity," Zenker said. "The position requires an individual's time, talent and action on issues that affect our livlihood and our legacy. I hope many members consider running."

District Nominating Committees must submit a list of candidates to the NDSA office by June 20.
