Nomination Process

  • Only one nomination per candidate is necessary. Additional nominations for a candidate should not be solicited. Additionally, “endorsements” for national officer candidates are unnecessary. The nominating process will not recognize endorsements of candidates.
  • Candidates for elective office are reminded that AGA's National Bylaws do not permit campaigning for any elective offices.
  • All submissions will be forwarded to the National Nominating Committee* who will fill the national officer slate by choosing one candidate per position. Since the committee often receives more than one nomination per position, not every nominee will be selected.
  • Nominees will be notified of the National Nominating Committee’s slate of candidates approximately six weeks after the deadline. AGA bylaws stipulate that members may submit petition nominations until Feb. 1, 2018. However, if no petition nominations are received, the Nominating Committee’s slate of candidates takes office on July 1, 2018.

Submissions and deadline

  • Nominations must be submitted via online form. We are currently updating the nominations forms. Please check back in late October 2018 for submission information.
