In 2003 the terms of all nine officers will expire. Those elected will be installed on August 2, 2003, at the ANA’s 112th Anniversary Convention in Baltimore, Maryland, and will composethe Board of Governors for the ensuing two years.
ANA members with voting privileges can nominate candidates for the ANA Board of Governors. Nominations must be in writing and received by the executive director no earlier than December 1, 2002, and no later than March 31, 2003.
Nominees must be members who are entitled to hold office under the ANA Bylaws. Associate and honorary members, member clubs, and members under the age of 18 may not hold office. To be eligible for the office of president or vice president, a member must have served at least one term as governor.
