Candidate Materials for NSPRA Executive Board Due April 1

NSPRA’s Executive Board Search Committee (EBSC) is currently seeking candidates for each NSPRA Executive Board office that will become available in October 2021. Association members who wish to be considered as potential candidates must submit their candidate materials to the EBSC chair by Thursday, April 1.

The three open offices on the Executive Board in 2021 are as follows:

  • President-elect
  • Southeast Region Vice President (AL, FL, GA, MS, NC, SC, TN, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands) 
  • Northwest Region Vice President (AK, ID, MT, OR, WA, Alberta, BC, Northwest Territories, Saskatchewan, Yukon) 

Members from South Carolina and Washington state are not eligible to run this year for the two open offices for regional vice president, according to association bylaws. The state restriction does not apply to candidates for president-elect.

To be eligible for consideration as a candidate for an elected office with NSPRA, members must:

  • Have maintained a professional membership (individual or institutional professional membership package I, II) for the past five (5) consecutive years,
  • Be a member of their state NSPRA chapter if one exists and
  • Have attended at least three (3) of the last five National Seminars. (Attendance at NSPRA Live 2020 may count toward this criteria.)

NSPRA members who wish to be considered as candidates:

The election for any contested positions will be held in August, and successful candidates will assume office in October. Should candidates for office run uncontested, no election will be held and the candidate will be affirmed by acclamation of the Executive Board at the Annual Meeting and Celebration of Achievement during the NSPRA 2021 National Seminar on Sunday, July 11.

For more information about running for office, contact NSPRA Associate Director Mellissa Braham, APR, at (NOTE: submission email address updated).​
