Our bylaws-driven process for selecting the slate of nominees for the 2019 AHMP Board is a four step process:
- We announce that we are seeking nominees. Nominees are provided with a job description, a nomination form seeking information on the nominee’s experience with AHMP national committees, AHMP chapter management, or other non-profit organizations, and other documents including Confidentiality, Commitment (personal, as well as employer authorization), and Conflict of Interest forms. Within 30 days of the announcement, each nominee must send a completed forms package back to the AHMP Leadership Committee.
- Nominees are evaluated and one nominee per available Board position is chosen for the slate. This slate of nominees is then announced to AHMP members.
- Upon announcement of the slate, AHMP opens a 30 day window in which we again ask for nominations from the floor. Any member can submit a nomination for themselves or others. If nominations are made, nominations are reviewed for basic minimum qualifications. Those meeting the qualification standards are added to the slate and an election is held.
- Following an election, or, if no names were added to the slate from the floor, the 2019 Board is announced.
Vice-president/president-elect is a three year commitment (includes one year as Immediate past president), treasurer is a two year term, and director-at-Large positions are for three years. Participation in all board meetings and functions is expected. There are typically four to six board meetings per year with two in-person meetings, one in January and one at the National Conference. All other meetings are held by teleconference or webinar.
