The election of the candidates will take place at the March 2 meeting with a secret ballot. To open nominations from the floor, the chair declares, “Nominations are now in order for the office of Board Director. Are there nominations for Board Director?”
According to Robert’s Rules, motions to close nominations are usually unnecessary because the nomination process simply continues until no one wants to make further nominations. When the nominations stop, the chair just declares nominations closed.
