APTA Nominations Process Open

The APTA Nominating Committee continues to accept nominations through July 17 to fill leadership positions on the recently expanded Executive Committee and Board of Directors.

The committee will recommend individuals to stand for election at the APTA Business Meeting, Saturday, Oct. 7, in Atlanta, prior to the 2017 Annual Meeting & EXPO.

Nominations must be submitted entirely online. Candidates must upload all materials—including letters of support—to the APTA website for delivery to the Nominating Committee, chaired by APTA Immediate Past Chair Valarie J. McCall. Find materials, a list of open positions, guidelines and a list of committee members here.

The APTA Executive Committee set the following guidelines for candidates:

* Personal letters, emails, personal conversations and phone calls are acceptable campaign strategies;

* Campaign events and distribution of campaign materials are not permitted during or in conflict with any APTA meeting or conference event. Campaigning may occur before or after an APTA meeting or conference event;

* APTA staff members or other APTA resources cannot be used in campaign activities; and

* Serving on the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee requires a substantial personal and financial commitment. Interested individuals should ensure that their organization will permit their travel to meetings up to four times a year for board members and up to eight times a year for Executive Committee members. APTA reimburses travel expenses for two meetings.
