• Assures excellence in governance through a disciplined approach based on adherence to the highest standard of ethical conduct in all aspects of its guidance, decision-making, and leadership of the association

The information also will be posted in the online election system.

The online election will open on April 6 and close on April 24; during this period, NCBA CLUSA members in good standing will be able to cast their votes.

The NCBA CLUSA Board election is handled electronically through Simply Voting, a secure, cost-effective, environmentally responsible online platform for election services.
