About the Process
The submission deadline for applications to serve as an at-large member of the Nominating Committee is December 15, 2020. An appointment is for a one-year term, effective July 1, 2021. While serving as an at-large member, the appointed member agrees to be disqualified from any nomination during their term. Some travel for in-person meetings may be required.
The President serves as this Committee’s Chair. This body also consists of the last two past Presidents, the President-Elect, and the President-Elect Designate. An at-large member from AHLA’s Board of Directors and an at-large member from the general membership serve one-year, non-renewable terms. While serving in an at-large position, the members agree to be disqualified from any nomination while serving on the Nominating Committee.
Due to high level of interest in serving in a leadership position, a member is appointed to only one position at a time. Terms are often staggered for those serving to prevent everyone rotating off at the same time; as a result, there may be more or less openings available in any given year.
