Every odd-numbered year, the NASG holds elections for several positions within the NASG's Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees manages the current state of the NASG and sets the course for the future of the NASG.
The three regional Vice President positions are elected during each of those elections (serving two-year terms). Every other election, either the President and Treasurer are elected, or the Executive Vice President and Secretary are elected (all serving four-year terms). Within the NASG board, each of these positions has equal voting power.

For the 2021 NASG BOT elections, the following positions are up for election:
Central Region Vice President
Eastern Region Vice-President
Western Region Vice-President
We have no term limits, so any incumbent can run for the same or another position. Additionally, any other member of the NASG, in good standing with the organization, is eligible to nominate him- or herself for any of these positions. Nominations are now being taken for the 2021 election. To nominate yourself, contact the Election Committee Chairman (see e-mail link above) with your intention to nominate yourself for a particular position. Members are also allowed to nominate another NASG member, but be sure to get that other member's permission first.
Nominations are due in November 2020, to allow enough time to prepare the ballots for the 2021 Dispatch issue with which the ballots will be mailed.
The Election Chairman will be able to provide you with more details, but generally a less-than-200-word description of why you want to run and, perhaps, your qualifications is generally needed. This text will likely be printed on the ballot or in the Dispatch for the general membership to read when voting.
Election results are posted on this web site and in the Dispatch. The successfully-elected candidates will become an active member of the NASG Board of Trustees during the election year's NASG Convention.
The tasks assigned to each NASG Board of Trustee member is described in the NASG's legal documents, links to which are provided below.
