The Association Directors & Officers Recruitment Committee (ARC) is currently seeking candidates for the following Association Board of Directors (ABoD) positions that will become available January 1, 2014:

  • Association Executive Vice President/President-Elect (will serve as 2015 Association President)
  • Association Secretary (single one-year term)
  • Association Treasurer (single one-year term)
  • Association Director – Central District (term 2014-2015)
  • Association Director – Eastern District (term 2014-2015)
  • Association Director – Southern District (term 2014-2015)
  • Association Director – Western District (term 2014-2015)

Who is Eligible?

Association elections are open to all Professional members in good standing, including honorary members and those who joined under the Student-to-Professional (S2P) program.  There are a few additional eligibility rules: 

  • Current members of a District Directors & Officers Recruitment Committee (DRC) and ARC may not stand for Association Officer or Director election;
  • Candidates for Association Director must come from the District that elects them (see What's My District below);
  • Individuals currently finishing two complete terms as an Association Director are ineligible to run for a third term;
  • Candidates for an Association Officer position must have served for at least one year on ABoD or a Region Board of Directors.

Are you a current Region or Chapter leader?  We encourage you to consider standing for election as an Association Director.

What is the Candidate Process?

Any eligible member interested in being considered as a candidate should review the materials found at, where you will also find the 2013 Candidate Application and instructions for submitting it. The deadline for all Candidate Applications is 4:00pm CDT June 30, 2013.

All Candidate Applications will be vetted first by your DRC. If you are interested in standing for election, I encourage you to contact your District Chair ASAP:

When will Elections be Held?

Following the June 30th deadline for Candidate Applications, the ARC is responsible for deciding on the slate of candidates for election based on DRC recommendations. The ARC will report the slate to the Association President and ABoD by its July 24th ABoD meeting. We will hold the election for Association Officers and Directors in September and successful candidates will assume office on January 1, 2014. Should a candidate for a position run uncontested, then there will be no election held for that position, and the candidate will be affirmed by ABoD acclamation.


What’s My District?

For the purpose of Association elections, we are organized into four Districts formed from our Regions

  • Central – Region 5
  • Eastern – Regions 11, 13, 18
  • Southern – Regions 3, 7
  • Western – Regions 1, 2, 4

Whether you belong to a Chapter or are a Member-at-Large, you are also a member of a Region. Unsure of your Region? See the Region map at
