November 2010 Branch Election

Dear NAACP Members:

Regarding those who elect to seek office for the next DeKalb NAACP election term the following policy applies:

"For the purpose of serving as a candidate for an elected office one must be a bona fide member of the Branch as of April 1st prior to the date nominations are made, as well as live and/or work within the jurisdiction of the Branch."

The nomination committee will be elected at the September meeting and they will bring their nominations back to the October membership meeting. At the October meeting, other nominations for officers and members at large may be made from the floor. The election will be held in November and the officers and members at large will be announced at the November meeting. For your convenience, I have attached a copy of the 2010 Branch Election Manual.

You will be electing the following:
President; 1st Vice President; 2nd Vice President; 3rd Vice President; Secretary; Asst Secretary; Treasurer; Asst Treasurer; and several members at large.

Should you have questions, please feel free to contact the office by calling (404) 241-8006 or email us at

Serving DeKalb County,

Yvonne Hawks, Esq.
