National Committee on Nominations & Leadership Identification (NCNLI)

The NCNLI consists of 13 members, each representing an electoral region.  Members of the NCNLI are elected to serve for three years.  The committee is responsible for developing the slate of candidates for the annual election of officers and members of the NASW Board and NCNLI.  The committee also monitors the election and investigates cases of alleged violation of the campaign rules and procedures.

Meet the members of the NCNLI.
