Call for nominations: Regional Directors

USHPA is soliciting nominations for regional directors, for the 2018-2020 term of office.

The currently-serving directors are listed below, and each of them is a candidate for re-election. They are already on the ballot; you don't need to nominate them again. We are interested in having other members bring their skills and experience to the board, so if you'd like to run for office, you're welcome to put your name down as a candidate.

NOTE: Nominations are due by August 11. The easiest way to do this is to complete the online nomination form.

If you're nominating someone else, please check with them first to make sure they're interested, and willing to run for the position and accept the responsibility.

The current regional directors whose terms end this year are:

Region 1: Mark Forbes
Region 2: Josh Cohn
Jon James (not running for re-election)
Region 3: Ken Andrews
Alan Crouse
Region 4: Ken Grubbs
Region 5: Josh Pierce (not running for re-election)
Region 6: Tiki Mashy
Region 7: No election this year
Region 8: No election this year
Region 9: Larry Dennis
Region 10: Matt Taber
Bruce Weaver
Region 11: Tiki Mashy
Region 12: No election this year

Regional directors serve two year terms, so in regions where there is only one director there's an election every other year.

The election starts in November and runs until mid-December. To meet magazine deadlines for candidate statements, we need to have nominations in by August 11, and candidate statements with bios by September 1.

If you have questions about the job of regional director, the responsibilities that go with it, or the election in general, feel free to send me an email.
