Meet the Candidates
Four candidates have been nominated for the five board seats that are open in this election year. All four candidates will be elected to the NAMI Board.
Due to the low number of candidates, the NAMI Board will have a vacancy beginning in July 2011. This vacancy will be filled by appointment of the Board based on the report of a Nominating Committee made up of three Board members designated by the President. The NAMI Board sees this as an opportunity to reach out to NAMI State Organizations, NAMI Affiliates and NAMI members for suggestions. The NAMI Board will be looking for individuals who bring dedication as well as experience and skills that will augment those already serving on the Board.
Candidates are listed in the order in which their nominations were received at the NAMI office. All candidate statements are unedited, presented as submitted.
- Janet Edelman - nominated by NAMI Howard County, Maryland
- Ron Morton - nominated by NAMI Cumberland Plateau, Tennessee
- Keris Jän Myrick - nominated by NAMI California
