Announcement of the Formation of the Nominating Committee

In the Fall of the even-numbered years, our Committees typically form Nominating
Committees to put together Officer slates that are then balloted at the end of the odd-
numbered years. The committee can then announce the formation of the nominating
committee as provided in the Regulations:

9.6 Election of Officers—Each committee shall elect officers by a ballot concluded


before December 31 of the odd-numbered years. Eligibility criteria, procedures and time
frame for the nomination and election of officers shall be prescribed in the committee's
bylaws. An announcement of the formation of the nominating committee and a request
for the submission of candidates shall be made at the meeting preceding the final report
of the nominating committee and the presentation of the slate of officers. Nominations
from the floor will be accepted immediately following the presentation of the slate. The
final slate of nominees, including their voting interests and classifications shall be sent
to ballot vote of the committee. ASTM Headquarters shall conduct the elections and
report the results to the committee. The term of office shall be two years beginning
January 1 and terminating December 31 of the second year. Officers are eligible for
election to not more than three consecutive terms in one office. No two officers of a
committee shall represent the same voting interest.

In preparation for this, please consider appointment of the nominating committee.
