The CBP Nominating Committee consists of seven residents elected at the previous Town Meeting, seven residents appointed by the President of the CBP, and the officers of the CBP. No elected member shall serve more than one consecutive term as an elected member and no appointed member shall serve more than one consecutive term as an appointed member.
Between the elected and appointed members, wide representation of the community is sought. The CBP bylaws charge the party to have Nominating Committee representation from each public elementary school attendance area within the Village of Glen Ellyn—not less than one no more than four committee members shall reside within a school attendance area.
Role of Nominating Committee:
- Raise public understanding that CBP assures quality non-partisan government and volunteer involvement.
- Promote resident involvement and support (includes supplying names for CBP's fund-raising appeal).
- Recruit potential candidates for Village and Library office.
- Interview potential candidates to determine their interest and qualifications.
- Nominate candidates.
- Prompt residents to attend Town Meeting and vote. (Note: Members promote slate, not particular candidates.)
- Help as needed at the Town Meeting.
- Circulate petitions and work to get candidates elected if opposed.
