Notifications and nomination documents have been sent to Delegates in even-numbered regions.

The nominee must submit a one-page, single-sided candidate form and an optional résumé, which will be printed in the Delegate Assembly agenda exactly as submitted.
Delegates within a region usually prefer to come to agreement regarding a nominee for Regional Director rather than submitting more than one candidate to the full Delegate Assembly for consideration. However, if there is more than one nominee, a regional caucus meeting is held to recommend one nominee to the full body. At that meeting, each candidate is allotted the same amount of time to speak and answer questions and an election by written ballot is held. If there are two or more candidates for Regional Director following the regional caucus meeting, candidates are allowed three minutes to address the Delegates during the Candidates Forum.
Nominations for CSBA Directors-at-Large, Asian Pacific Islander and Hispanic are now being accepted until Friday, September 28. The nominations for Directors-at-Large must be made by a CSBA member board and the nominee must be a board member from a CSBA member board.
