District Delegates

District Convention is held in April which is too early for District Convention Delegates to be elected at the same time as other offciers and delegates. Nominations will open at the February regular business meeting and elections will be held at the March regular business meeting. Nominations will remain open until voting begins.

The Nominations Committee, as is traditional at our Post, is the Senior Vice Commander Jerry Bouk. He is responsible to have one OR MORE nominee for each office and will "report" (place in nomination) his slate to begin nominations in February. The Nominations Committee screens candidates only in that each must be a "member in good standing" (dues current) member of the Post. To place your name in nomination through the committee, call Jerry at (702)688-7966 x105 or by email at SVCommander@VFWPost12093.org.

A member amy hold only one of the elected offices. However, a delegate does not constitute being an elected officer and so an elected officer may also be elected as one of the delegates. The Post Commander is already an ex officio delegate and so is not eligible.

  • District Delegate (Delegates to District Convention {1 for 30 members})
  • District Delegate
  • District Delegate
  • District Delegate
  • District Delegate
  • District Alternate (An alternate attends in the place of a delegate if the delegate is unable to attend.)

Delegates are voting members of "convention" representing the Post. District meets four times a year and the position is for all four meetings.

Nominations for elected officers for the Post will open at the March regular business meeting. Elections will be held for these positions at the April regular business meeting. Nominations will remain open until voting begins.

Appointed positions are to be announced by the newly elected Commander immediately after elections. If you desire one of the appointed positions, please contact the Commander nominees before April.

The Nominations Committee, as is traditional at our Post, is the Senior Vice Commander Jerry Bouk. He is responsible to have one OR MORE nominee for each office and will "report" (place in nomination) his slate to begin nominations in March. The Nominations Committee screens candidates only in that each must be a "member in good standing" (dues current) member of the Post.
