NHBZ Nomination and Election of Officers and Board of Directors


Did you ever wonder how the officers of NHBZ are elected? Do you want to have a say in the future direction of NHBZ?
Do you want to express your opinions to the Board of Directors?

You are invited to attend the NHBZ Annual Membership Meeting and Election of Officers on Sunday, November 18, at 10:00 am.

Every November, we hold a Membership meeting to give members a ‘state of the shul’ report. This is an opportunity for you to interact directly with the Rabbi, President and other officers and Board members about the business of the shul. If you would like to give your opinion, makes suggestions or just listen, this is your chance.

We will also elect officers and members of the Board of Directors. Here is how the election works. We have a nominating committee that consists of all past presidents. That committee deliberates throughout the year, it and comes up with a proposed slate of officers that is presented to the Board at the October Board Meeting. At the November Membership meeting, the slate is officially nominated, and other nominations are accepted from the floor. Note that we still have a few openings. All NHBZ members who attend the meeting have the privilege of voting. The Officers and Board members take office on January 1, 2019, with an official Installation early in 2019.

We have eight officers and fifteen Board members. Officers serve for one year, and can be re- elected. Board members serve for three years, with one third of the Board up for election each year. Here is the slate of nominees for 2019:
