WPTA Nominations for Office Needed!

posted: June 05, 2015

It's that time of year again! Time to start thinking about nominating a peer or yourself for the WPTA Fall election. The Nominating Committee is requesting your assistance in slating this year's candidate for elections for the following positions:

  • President (1)
  • Vice President (1)
  • Ethics Committee (1)
  • Director (1)
  • Nominating Committee (3)
  • Delegates (5)

Self-nominations are allowed as well as peer nominations.  Those interested in serving must be current WPTA/APTA members meeting the requirements of the position. If interested in finding out more, contact any member of the Nominating Committee (Nicole Marquardt (chair), Michael Edwards, Jenny Hastreiter, Josh Zilm, Ron Lawrence, Rob Worth, Scott Straker) or the Chapter Office.

This year's election process timeline is as follows:

  • July-August, the Nominating Committee will prepare a list of names of those willing to consent to serve and hold a phone conference to discuss nominations and prepare preliminary slate of candidates.
  • The slate will be finalized following the Fall Conference in October and the committee will submit candidates to WPTA Board of Directors. The online electronic election will occur in late October or early November with those elected taking office at the Spring Business Meeting in April of 2016.
