The Nominating Committee is responsible for addressing issues regarding unfilled vacancies of any UNA elected position due to expiration of term, resignation and termination.  This committee will also nominate individuals for UNA offices and for national offices within ANA.  This committee will notify new board members of their job descriptions and send letters of congratulations to all new Board Members following an election.  Specific guidelines for fulfilling these responsibilities are included in the UNA Bylaws.
