APTA Nominations Open for Expanded Executive Committee and Board Seats

The APTA Nominating Committee is accepting nominations through July 14 to fill leadership positions, recently announced APTA Chair Doran J. Barnes, who added that the committee will recommend individuals to stand for election at the APTA Business Meeting, Saturday, Oct. 7, in Atlanta, prior to the 2017 Annual Meeting & EXPO.

Immediate Past Chair Valarie J. McCall, board member, Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority, is chair of the Nominating Committee.

Barnes distributed a letter to all APTA members in May announcing the opening of nominations and providing a link to all the necessary information. To review that information, click here. The information also includes a link to the Nominating Committee roster, the list of open positions and guidance to the nominations committee.

Consistent with APTA’s sustainability commitment, this year’s nominations will be submitted entirely online, including all letters of support. All materials must be uploaded to the APTA website for delivery to the Nominating Committee.

The APTA Executive Committee has set the following guidelines for candidates seeking election to the APTA Board of Directors and Executive Committee:

* Personal letters, emails, personal conversations and phone calls are acceptable campaign strategies;
* Campaign events and distribution of campaign materials are not permitted during or in conflict with any APTA meeting or conference event. Campaigning may occur before or after an APTA meeting or conference event;
* APTA staff members or other APTA resources cannot be used in campaign activities; and
* Serving on the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee requires a substantial personal and financial commitment. Interested individuals should ensure that their organization will permit their travel to meetings up to four times a year for board members and up to eight times a year for Executive Committee members. APTA reimburses travel expenses for two meetings.
