The Board of Trustees and Advisory Council elections have a Nomination Committee (NomCom) that is responsible for identifying, recruiting, and certifying a properly selected slate of candidates to be placed in nomination before the membership for election. This year's NomCom members are Board of Trustee members Aaron Hughes (NomCom Chair) and Paul Andersen and general member volunteers John Brown, Byron Holland, Stephen Middleton, Tina Morris, and John Springer.
