The committee, or subcommittee thereof, will conduct an election each spring to fill vacant seats and expiring terms for exempt and nonexempt staff.
During March or April of each year, the committee will electronically announce, through the Lehigh Events and Announcements, a nomination process that is open to all exempt and nonexempt staff. Anonymous nominations will not be accepted. Nominators can nominate persons outside their employee group. Individuals nominated and willing to serve will have their names placed on the electronic ballot of their respective employee group. Voting will take place in April, and results will be announced at the annual Lehigh Appreciation Dinner.
Elections will be by secure electronic ballot. The electorate will electronically vote for nominees in their respective employee groups and may vote for as many individuals as there are announced openings.
The committee will determine all questions of nominee eligibility, election process and balloting.
