Nominations and Elections Timeline

The Nominating Committee annually seeks recommendations for nominees. Only chapter delegates vote in APTA elections, however all members are encouraged to submit a national office nomination form (NC-1 form) recommending other members or themselves for open positions. 

Additional materials related to APTA national elections can be found on the House of Delegates Community, which can be accessed by all APTA members.

Open positions are: President, Vice President, Board of Directors (3), and Nominating Committee (1).

Your Nominating Committee

The Nominating Committee prepares a slate of candidates to be elected for national office (Board of Directors and Nominating Committee) each year at the House of Delegates. Nominations for national office are submitted each fall by all APTA members.

If you or someone you know is interested in serving in a national office, contact any committee member or your component liaison, they will assist in fostering leadership potential throughout the year.
