It is time for the annual MASFAA election. Each year the membership votes for President-Elect, Treasurer-Elect, and 2 Delegates-at-Large. Additionally, the positions of Vice President and Secretary are 2-year positions elected in alternating years. This year we will vote for Vice President.
MASFAA is extremely fortunate to have a full and strong slate of candidates. The election ballot is made up of many qualified individuals who have a real commitment to students, our profession, and our region. They will each bring unique experience and talents to their position upon election.
The Nominations and Election Committee thanks all persons who nominated colleagues and everyone who considered running for office. MASFAA’s strength is definitely found in its membership, and the committee is delighted with the strength of the ballot and varied backgrounds each candidate brings to their sought-after role.
All persons elected will serve on the Executive Board for 2 years beginning in October with the President-Elect beginning a 3-year cycle with the Board.
Please take the time to read each statement of candidacy and their backgrounds. The election window for submitting your online ballot is today, March 31st through April 16th. All regular, paid MASFAA members are eligible to vote and encouraged to do so.
Again, a special thank you to all MASFAA members who stand before us as candidates for the Executive Board. We are privileged to have so many talented individuals willing to serve and guide our association. All the best to each candidate!
