Executive Committee Positions: The Executive Committee manages the affairs of the association. The committee meets in person once a year, immediately before the Annual Meeting, and virtually as required throughout the year. Each committee member is tasked with a specific responsibility (listed below for the current Executive Committee). More information about the role of the Executive Committee and of the Membership and Credentials Committee can be found in the Association's Constitution and Bylaws.
Nominations are requested from the AABA membership for the following positions as part of a special election:
Treasurer (Four Year Term)
The treasurer is responsible for drafting and overseeing the AABA annual budget, maintaining financial records, creating an annual Financial Report, and working with other ExComm members and BAI on all fiscal matters.
Eligibility: Nominees must be AABA Regular Members in good standing. The President Elect should ideally have prior experience in serving on the AABA Executive Committee. Any AABA member (student, regular, or special) may submit a nomination. Self nominations are encouraged. To check a nominee's membership status, login here and navigate to the "Member Directory."
Nomination Slate: From the proposed eligible nominees, the AABA Nominations Committee, chaired by Dr. Leslea Hlusko will seek input from the Executive Committee regarding the slate of nominees and recommend to the Executive Committee two candidates per position and alternates for the official ballot. The President will contact potential candidates in advance of the ballot to obtain their willingness to run.
Voting: A link to the online ballot will be emailed to Regular Members in January. The poll closes in late February.
