Thinking of running for an APNA officer position at our October 26th First Member Meeting & Officer Elections?
You should! We’re sure your unique talents make you a great candidate for any of these positions.
If you decide to run for an officer position, you don’t have to do anything but become a member, show up to the meeting, and we’ll call for nominations and self-nominations. Be prepared to (briefly) tell the members why you’d make a great candidate. We’ll vote there and then!
–If you can’t make the meeting, but still want to run for an officer position, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
–If you want to run for multiple officer positions, that’s fine too! As an example, you can run for VP, and if you don’t get the position, you can run for Treasurer.
So that we can get an idea of how long our meeting will be, please let us know if you’re thinking of running. Email us at email@example.com.
