Strong leadership can drive positive change, even in the most challenging of circumstances. Is it your turn to lead?
All candidates for office must file in writing for the office for which they wish to run. All that is needed is a simple statement of your intent to be a candidate and the office for which you are running. For example, “It is my intent to run for Executive Board member for the North Country Region.” Include your name and the local association in which you are a member. This statement needs to be sent to:
The Elections Committee, c/o Rick Trombly, NEA–NH,
9 South Spring Street, Concord, NH 03301 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
