DECEMBER MEETING (12/7)
Sign Up or Renew Your Membership at the Meeting. In order to cast a vote, you must be a current paid member of NFA. The easiest way is to be ready to pay up your 2017 $35 dues at the December meeting.
THE REST OF DECEMBER
Sign up by Mail or maybe Renew Online. You will have a month between our December and January meeting to sign up or renew your paid membership in order to receive a ballot in January. You can sign up or renew your membership by sending a check made out to “NFA” for $35 with the memo line “2017 membership.”
Make sure you include on the check or separate paper your NAME, EMAIL and PHONE NUMBER.

Volunteer to Serve. NFA needs folks willing to serve as Officers, on the Board and the standing committees. If you are a paid member and willing to volunteer send to
Johnnye Gerhardt via
In the email include:
POSITION(S) where you would like to serve. It is very possible to be on the Board and a Standing Committee.
YOUR QUALIFICATIONS we will send these with the ballots so also include a brief explanation of why you want to, what you want to do.
The sooner you volunteer the better and no later than 12/26. The Nominations Committee will need a week to recruit unfilled slots and to put together a slate. You must be a paid member to serve on the Board or as an Officer but anyone may serve on a standing committee.
JANUARY MEETING (1/4)
Nominations Presented. The Nominations Committee will present its slate but nominations by any paid member in current standing will be able to place themselves or others into nomination at the meeting. I will do my best to in advance of the meeting let anyone who volunteered, but did not make it on the slate for their desired position, know so they can place themselves in nomination if they desire. If you can’t make it to the meeting email me and I will place your name in nomination but it might be more effective to have a friend at the meeting do it, just to let folks know you have friends.
Intros and Case. At the January meeting all the nominees will be asked to make a two-minute introduction and case for their service. If you can be at the meeting find a friend to make one for you.
THE REST OF JANUARY
Ballots Distributed. We are still working on online or hardcopy but ballots will be distributed to all paid members. All nominees will be invited to provide a short written introduction and case to accompany the ballot. Nominees are welcome to reach out to members on their own during the month to solicit support.
Ballots should be returned by no later than Friday (2/3)
FEBRUARY MEETING (2/8)
We will announce results at the meeting Wednesday (2/8) and online after that.
Come enjoy our monthly networking events where filmmakers, film enthusiasts, and talent both in front and behind the camera come together to network, share ideas and help develop the foundation of film-making in Nebraska!
Guests are always welcome. When applicable, announcements and updates are shared about upcoming projects, as well as updates about efforts to strengthen and enhance the film/commercial industry in Nebraska.
And, as always, if you would like to make an announcement at the event about a movie, video, or advertising projects, we would appreciate it if you would run it by a board member first.
See you there!
