The NRHC Executive Board is seeking candidates for a number of key positions! Nominations must be completed by no later than Monday, May 22nd 2023. Self-nominations are welcomed and encouraged. A link to the nomination form and information about what to submit are included below. We are seeking candidates for the following positions:
4 year term
The Vice President, when elected, assumes a four year rotation on the NRHC Executive Board. The first year, the Vice President serves a liaison to the Student Representative and helps to coordinate some aspects of the annual conference. The Vice President then succeeds to the office of President-Elect and serves as Co-Chair for the annual conference. The President-Elect then succeeds to the office of President, leading the organization and co-chairing the annual conference. The President succeeds to the office of Immediate Past President for the fourth and final year of the term.
3 year term
The Secretary is takes and disseminates minutes at all board and council meetings, maintains the NRHC document repository, and regularly monitors the NRHC Gmail account – sending membership wide emails and responding to queries.
2 year term (Note: Normally, the Web Coordinator position is a 3 year term. However, because this position was vacant after the last elections, a Web Coordinator was appointed for a 1-year term, so the candidate elected will complete the remaining term of 2 years.)
The Web Coordinator needs a facility for learning new technologies and some basic design sense but no coding or programming knowledge is needed. The Web Coordinator maintains the Council's website, coordinates the Call for Proposals system and the Conference Registration process in collaboration with our vendor.

The Faculty Representatives plan and coordinate the Big Picture Discussion and Consultants' Corner during the yearly conference as well as several Decompression Chamber sessions throughout the year.

Student Representatives (TWO positions open)
