Each summer, the Society's Nominating Committee assembles a slate of candidates from the AFS membership for election to the various offices that will be vacant at the end of that year. Society members vote to elect new officers in November and December, and new officers assume their responsibilities in January.
The Committee will present its slate of candidates by August 1, after which members will have the opportunity to add candidates to the slate by petition. We will invite all candidates to participate in a Candidates' Forum at this November's annual meeting in Santa Fe.
Secure online voting will begin on November 15 and will continue until the end of the year. Those elected will take office in January 2015.
