CNPOA Board Member Election Process
Election and Terms
CNPOA Board of Directors consist of 9 elected representatives chosen by Cobbly Nob members. Each Director is elected for a 3 year term. Terms of the 9 directors are staggered so that only 3 Directors change each election cycle. This enables the Board to have a sense of continuity to Board decisions and projects.
A Director may not serve more than 2 terms consecutively.
Beginning May 1st, 2021 the Secretary of the Association will begin collecting Nomination forms. Nomination forms should contain the signatures of at least 3 Association Members and be accompanied by a brief resume of the candidate’s qualifications. All Nomination Forms must be received by May 31st, 2021.
Nomination forms can be emailed, mailed, or hand delivered to the Village Manager or Administrator.
