Training may be taken by mail or at an Arizona Fire District Association conference and includes open meeting law, Fire District finance, and other statutory things Board Members need to know. The next AFDA conference is in July 2016.
- Board Member terms are staggered, 4 and 2 years, so with 5 all new members, the top 3 vote getters would have 4 year terms, the remaining 2 would have 2 year terms. In November 2016 the 2 bottom vote getters would run for election again.

HOW TO PETITION AS A CANDIDATE FOR THE LMRFD FIRE BOARD (SIMPLIFIED)
Please visit the Mohave County Elections Dept. webpage for more detailed info: http://www.mohavecounty.us/ContentPage.aspx?id=118&cid=503
1. You must file the $500 Threshold Exemption Statement (BEFORE the time of filing your Nomination Paper), at the Elections Dept. (upstairs in the County building at 700 W. Beale). If you intend to receive or spend MORE than $500 in campaign funds, or if that happens at any point during your campaign, you must submit the “Statement of Organization” to the Elections Dept.
2. The Nomination Petition must be printed on both sides of one piece of paper.
3. You will need a minimum of 7 signatures and a maximum of 250 to get on the ballot. It is recommended that you do collect more than 7, as sometimes signors may be disqualified for various reasons. You cannot begin collecting signatures until the date to do so is announced, or they will be disqualified. Confirm the date with the Elections Dept.
4. It is important to remember to file your “Termination Statement”, within 90 days after the election, to avoid a $100 penalty.
