Nominate a Board Member or Expert Advisor

Our Annual Meeting is the forum to elect Board of Directors and to recognize Advisors. The Board of Directors holds fiduciary responsibility over the organization and helps support strategic and general direction. Standard Board terms are three years. The Expert Advisory Council provides guidance and feedback on key activities and opportunities for the organization. There are no specified terms for Advisors but they commonly serve two years. All stakeholder types among the membership are open for nominations and sharing interest in positions of leadership. Please submit your nomination by end of day May 17, 2021.
