NASP Board of Director Election Nomination form
The election process is open to current NASP members only. As a voting member of NASP you may participate in the election process. Members may nominate themselves or a fellow NASP member. NASP members will nominate candidates for the Board of Directors.

This year’s ballot has a smaller than usual number of Board positions available (3) than would normally be the case due to the Board’s decision to amend the by-laws in 2017, effective 2018 to allow the Executive Committee to select two members for appointment.  To allow for the change, five Board positions will become available at the end of 2018 with 2 being appointed as noted earlier and three elected.   This was done to broaden the skillset of the Board and to attract individuals that would not normally be given consideration.

* Note to NASP Associate Members: Associate Members (i.e., trustees, government and regulatory agency employees) do not have voting rights, however, you have been included in the distribution list to keep you informed of NASP activities.
