The NASW-NYC Nominations Committee Seeks Recommendations for Chapter Elections

 

The Chapter’s Committee on Nominations and Leadership Identification has requested that members begin to make recommendations now. The basic requirement for being nominated is current membership in NASW.

 

In keeping with NASW’s Affirmative Action policy, Chapter leadership must proportionally reflect the number of women (79%) and people of color (19%) in the organization’s overall membership. NASW recognizes the following groups in its Affirmative Action policy: American Indian/Native Americans; Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders; Blacks and Latinos. The Chapter will also consider sexual orientation as part of its affirmative action goals.

 

Please use this form to make your recommendations. If you have any questions, please contact moskos@naswny.org.
