Executive Committee Position: Nominations are requested from the AAPA membership for the following position:
The Executive Committee manages the affairs of the association and members are elected to a three year term. The committee meets in person once a year, immediately before the Annual Meeting, and virtually as required throughout the year. Each committee member is tasked with a specific responsibility (listed below for the current Executive Committee). The person elected to the upcoming vacancy will chair the Membership and Credentials Committee and oversee the nomination and election of members. More information about the role of the Executive Committee and of the Membership and Credentials Committee can be found in the Association's Constitution and Bylaws.
Eligibility: Nominees must be AAPA Regular Members in good standing. Any AAPA member (student, regular, or special) may make a nomination. Self nominations are accepted. To check a nominee's membership status, logon at http://birenheide.com/AAPA/memberinfo.php and go to the directory of members.
Nomination Slate: From the proposed, eligible nominees, the AAPA Nominations Committee, chaired by Dr. Anne Grauer, will recommend to the Executive Committee two candidates per position and alternates for the official ballot. The President will contact potential candidates in advance of the ballot to obtain their willingness to run.
Voting: A link to the online ballot will be emailed to Regular Members in January. The poll closes in late February.
