Submit a Nomination


Any current members may submit a nomination for regional representatives for the NCJA Advisory Council. Nominees must be current dues paying, individual, tribal or criminal justice coordinating council members from the nominator’s region in order to be placed on the ballot.

 

Nominations may be submitted online or by email.

 

Nominations should be accompanied by a short biographical sketch of the nominee to include the nominee's present position, responsibilities, background and education; multiple nominations may be submitted and members may nominate themselves.

After nominations are solicited from the membership-at-large, individual, tribal government and criminal justice coordinating council members will vote by secret ballot. Ballots will be sent to members by email and elections will be held online. The top three vote getters from each region will serve as regional representatives with the fourth highest vote-getter serving as an alternate.

For questions, please contact Bethany Broida.

Any individual or tribal member or a representative from a member criminal justice coordinating council in good standing can serve as a regional representative. Regional representatives are elected for a two-year term and may serve consecutive terms. Each region will elect a minimum of three representatives; a fourth representative may be elected from the tribal government members in each region. The four regions - West, Midwest, South and Northeast (see below).

The Advisory Council meets once a year at the Forum on Criminal Justice. Additional meetings may be held online or by telephone. Because the perspective of practitioners is important, regional representatives are expected to attend this meeting.
