Nominations Committee

The Nominations Committee is responsible for the nominations of Association officers. It is composed of the president and the executive director as non-voting members and nine voting members of the Governing Council. The Committee serves from the time of its election until the reading of the Committee report at the first regularly scheduled session of the Governing Council at the next Annual Meeting.

All nominees for the Executive Board are selected from among the membership of the Association, except that the nominees for the offices of honorary vice president may include persons who are not members of the Association.

For more information on the Nominations Committee, contact Committee Chair Catherine Cooksley, DrPH, MPH, or Deborah Dillard, executive assistant to the chief of staff.
