Annually, in the fall, a "Call for Nominations" is sent electronically to all voting members. Members may nominate themselves or others for the four seats on the Board that become vacant each year: vice president elect and program chair elect and three representatives-at-large. The nominating committee, a standing committee of the Board, takes nominations into consideration when constructing the slate of candidates.
In the spring, all voting members select a new vice president elect and program chair elect from among three nominees and select three new representatives-at-large from among three nominees for each slot. The three representatives-at-large are nominated on the basis of activity in the divisions, activity in the affiliates, and potential leadership.
New officers and Board members, elected by May, officially assume their positions at the conclusion of the August annual meeting.
