With the retirement of President Larry Purtill slated for December 2022, current NEARI Vice President Senator Valarie Lawson will assume the office of president leaving the seat of vice president vacant. Both positions will be up for election with the other officers at the Delegate Assembly in May 2023.

Candidates must declare their intentions in writing to Executive Director Mary Barden. Declarations may be emailed to Mary directly at mbarden@neari.org, hand delivered, or mailed to NEARI offices at: 99 Bald Hill Rd. Cranston, RI 02920

If after nominations close there are no declared candidates for a particular office, a member or members may be nominated from the floor of the Executive Committee meeting.
