2019 Elections

In addition, the membership will elect three members to serve two-year terms as member-at-large directors, one member to serve a two-year term as treasurer, and one member to serve a one-year term as president-elect, followed by a one-year term as president and a one-year term as immediate past president. Learn more about the candidates.
