2023 Board & Officers Election – Nominations

The 2023 AMIA elections process is currently underway. In odd-numbered years, AMIA elects a President and three at-large directors to the Board of Directors. All AMIA officers and directors serve two-year terms.

AMIA relies on its Board of Directors to lead the association, ensure the organization’s mission is fulfilled and promote AMIA’s diverse activities. The Elections Committee encourages selection of a slate of nominees that fairly represents the professional and personal diversity of the membership. All members are encouraged to participate, including students and professionals at every career stage in all areas of engagement. The positions are:

*    President [1 position] (2023-2025)

*    Director of the Board [3 positions] (2023-25)

The Election Committee hereby solicits names to be considered for its provisional slate. Once this provisional slate is announced, additional names may be placed on the ballot through a nomination-by-petition process before the slate of candidates is finalized.

To nominate someone (including yourself) for the consideration of the Elections Committee, please send an email containing the nominee’s contact information by July 1 to Andrea Leigh and use the phrase “AMIA Nominee” in the subject line.

The Election Committee’s provisional slate will be announced in July. This will be followed by a two-week nomination-by-petition period. For more information about the nomination-by-petition process or about the elections process, please review the Elections Manual. Information about the responsibilities of AMIA’s Board members is available in the Board Handbook.
