The Network of Executive Women has released a slate of two new faces and five current Board members nominated for officer and director positions on the Network's 2015-2016 Board.

First-time nominees for the position of NEW Board director at-large are Carmen Bauza, senior vice president and general merchandising manager, consumables and health and wellness for Wal-Mart Stores Inc., and Nicola Johnson, principal, Consumer & Industrial Products Practice at Deloitte Consulting LLC.

NEW Vice Chair Karen Stuckey, senior vice president of softlines and general merchandise sourcing for Wal-Mart Stores, is nominated for the position of Board Chair, currently held by Betsy Hosick, general manager, procurement, downstream, midstream and services at Chevron Corporation. Hosick is nominated for the position of immediate past Board chair. Board Director At-Large Sue Sears, vice president of global diversity and inclusion at Kimberly-Clark Corporation, is nominated to the role of education and research chair.

Rounding out the slate of nominees are incumbent Regional Advisory Chair Marla Thompson, senior vice president of U.S. Strategy at Catalina, and incumbent Board Director At-Large Tammy DeBoer, senior vice president of merchandising for Family Dollar Stores Inc.

In making its selections, the nominating committee, consisting of past and present Network officers, evaluated each applicant's involvement in NEW, achievements in diversity and inclusion, and ability to advance the Network's mission.

NEW members have an opportunity to vote on the slate on Oct. 1, 2015 at the annual Members Meeting held during the NEW Leadership Summit in Dallas.

The Network's bylaws allow NEW members to submit a petition for other nominees signed by at least 100 members. To nominate themselves or a colleague, NEW members may email Kimberly Linn at klinn@newonline.org. Petitions must be submitted by Sept. 4, 2015.
