2013 ASPR Board of Directors elections
By Jennifer Metivier, MS, FASPR, ASPR Executive Director
The 2013 ASPR Board of Directors elections will occur in June. The call for nominations was open from March 5-31. This year we will elect the president-elect, treasurer and three members at large. The members-at-large positions that are up for election are the newly-defined vice president of education, vice president of engagement, and vice president of research. The terms for these positions will begin in August 2013 and end in May 2015. The terms end in May 2015 due to the transition of the ASPR annual conference from August to May that year. The official transition of board members occurs at the ASPR annual business meeting held at the annual conference.
Frank Gallagher, vice president of governance, will preside over the nomination and election process. An election task force will vet each candidate; all qualified nominees will be presented to the membership for vote. Full candidate biographies will be provided in early June.
