Nominations Are Open

2021 NAPSW BOD and Officer Nominations

It is time to think about who to nominate for the upcoming 2021 elections! WE NEED YOU to think about who is Board of Directors "material" - or to volunteer yourself to run! During the April 2021 virtual conference, we will be electing individuals for the following positions: President, Secretary, five Board of Director members, and one Nominating Committee member. We really want to provide a full ballot with many options to our membership at the time of elections. Nominations are now open and ready to be received immediately and no later than February 1, 2021. But don't put it off! Send your nominations NOW.

Please consider nominating yourself or other NAPSW members you know for these positions. Candidates for Board of Director positions need to be members in good standing for one year prior to running for the Board. Candidates for Officer positions need to have served at least one term on the Board of Directors. This is your opportunity to develop and share leadership skills and contribute to keeping NAPSW a strong, vibrant, and relevant organization. Email your nominations to the committee members below. For more information on nominations and expectations for Board members, click here.
