Requirements and Details:

Therefore, the composition of the Board of Directors is weighted towards the general interest category to assure that we continue to work towards the public interest and the goals described above.
  • The Board is responsible for nominating NFRC members to fill these designated categories.
  • NFRC created a "Request for Designation for Potential Nominees” form, giving the membership a voice and allowing them to make recommendations directly to the Board
  • Submitted names from the membership give the Governance Committee and the Board individuals to consider for nomination.
  • NFRC uses electronic balloting to facilitate voting for our membership. The entire voting process is administered by an independent third party contractor

The NFRC staff is here to assist in implementation of the program as developed by the NFRC membership. Please let us help you navigate through the four Levels of NFRC Membership Participation to allow YOUR VOICE TO BE HEARD!
