Colorado Chapter Governance

Overview of the Election Process

The Colorado Chapter conducts Board of Directors elections each Summer to fill positions that will become vacant on June 30th. Board service terms align with the start and end of the organization’s Fiscal Year calendar, meaning that new service terms begin July 1st.

Student Representative members hold office for one year, so these positions are included in each election cycle. Most other Board positions are two-year terms, and the terms of these members are staggered so that approximately one-half become vacant each year. The Board President serves a two-year term, after serving one year as President-Elect. The position of the President-Elect is filled with appropriate timing so that the President-Elect will serve at the same time as the President is serving their second year in office (for this reason, the President-Elect position is open for election every-other-year).

NASW membership is required to run for election to the NASW Colorado Chapter Board of Directors, and service on the NASW-CO Board of Directors is countable as “Volunteer Service” for the purposes of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours for licensure renewal in Colorado.
