From Article 3, Directors in the AANM bylaws:


Directors shall be nominated and elected pursuant to the following procedure:
  (A) An election by written or electronic ballot is to be held at least thirty (30) days prior to the date
        the terms of one or more of the Directors are to expire. For purposes of this section, the election date
        shall be the last date on which returned ballots are required to be postmarked or hand delivered, as set out
        in Article III Section 8 (A)( iii).
  (B) The Nominating Committee may solicit written applications or suggestions for persons to be
        nominated as Directors from the membership. The persons actually nominated shall be chosen at the
        discretion of the Nominating Committee. The Nominating Committee shall establish written guidelines
        for rejecting a nominee.
  (C) At least thirty (30) days prior to the election of Directors, the Nominating Committee shall file its
        written report with the Executive Director setting forth its nominations for election to the Board of
        Directors. The Nominating Committee shall nominate at least one (1) Primary member in good standing
        for each Primary Director vacancy and at least one (1) Associate member in good standing for each
        Associate Director vacancy. No more than one (1) representative per each Primary or Associate member
        company may be nominated, elected or appointed to the Board at any time. Written or electronic ballots

        whether that nominee receives a majority of all votes cast. Election shall be by plurality, rather than
