Applications for members interested in the CML Executive Board will be accepted through 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 10. In anticipation of the CML Annual Conference that is still scheduled for June 23–26, members interested in running for one of the 10 positions up for election on the CML Executive Board are encouraged to submit their applications as soon as possible. 
Barring any adjustment in the CML Annual Conference schedule, members whose names are placed on the ballot by the CML Nominating Committee will be voted on by the membership at the CML Annual Business Meeting scheduled for Thursday, June 25, beginning at 1:45 p.m. 
The vacancies to be filled at the election are: 
    • one position from municipalities with a population of 250,000 or more for a two-year term; • three positions from municipalities with a population of at least 60,000, but less than 250,000 for two-year terms; • three positions from municipalities with a population of at least 8,000 but less than 60,000 for two-year terms; and • three positions from cities and towns with a population of less than 8,000 for two-year terms. Under CML bylaws, population figures for the June 2020 election will be based upon population estimates from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs. These are the same figures that were used in computing 2020 municipal dues for member municipalities. CML Executive Board members are elected at-large, which means each member municipality is entitled to vote at the CML Annual Business Meeting for their choices in all of the population categories.

Nomination procedures
Under CML bylaws, CML Executive Board members must be elected or appointed officials of member cities and towns. Any official who desires to be nominated for a position on the CML Executive Board can ensure nomination by:
    • filing an application for nomination, in letter or other written form, with the CML Nominating Committee. The application must be received in writing by the CML office at least 15 days prior to the annual business meeting, that is, by 5 p.m., Wednesday, June 10; and
    • including with the application an endorsement in writing from the applicant's city council or board of trustees, which also must be received by the CML office by Wednesday, June 10. Please note that a city council or board of trustees may endorse the nomination of only one official from the city or town for election.
Sample application and endorsement letters are available by visiting the CML website, www.cml.org, under About CML > CML Executive Board. Municipal officials who meet the above qualifications will be placed on the nominating committee's slate for consideration at the election during the annual business meeting.
File applications by June 10
Again, municipal officials who wish to pursue nomination and election to the CML Executive Board should file their written application with the CML Nominating Committee by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 10.
These materials should be mailed or delivered to the CML office at 1144 Sherman St., Denver, CO 80203, or faxed to 303-860-8175. Materials may also be emailed to executiveassistant@cml.org.
Questions about the CML Executive Board or the election process may be directed to Kevin Bommer, executive director, at kbommer@cml.org, 303-831-6411, or 866-578-0936.
