Nominations for APTA Leadership Now Open!

APTA Chair Nathaniel P. Ford Sr. has appointed the nominating committee that will recommend individuals to fill APTA leadership positions to the membership for approval at the APTA Annual Business Meeting and Election of Officers. The committee is accepting nominations until Aug. 3.

The slate of nominees selected by the committee will stand for election at the annual business meeting and election at noon Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018, in Nashville, TN.

There are 10 at-large director positions on the APTA Board of Directors (seven transit system members and three business members) to be filled in 2018. Those elected to these positions will be seated with terms ending in 2021.

APTA will hold its annual business meeting and election just prior to the start of the Annual Meeting. This will allow the newly elected board of directors to get right to work since that board will start its term immediately following the election.

APTA emailed nomination packets to all members on June 15, 2018. Components of the packet included the nominating committee roster, the list of officer and director positions to be filled, and directions on accessing the nomination and authorization forms.

Consistent with APTA’s sustainability commitment, nominations are submitted entirely online. All of these documents and easy-to-follow instructions are available here.

The APTA Executive Committee has set the following campaign guidelines to provide guidance to 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 are not to play any role in campaign activities; and

* Serving on the Board of Directors or the Executive Committee requires a substantial personal and financial commitment.  If you are interested in serving, please ensure that your organization is prepared for you to travel to meetings four times per year for board members and up to eight times per year for Executive Committee members. Travel expenses are only reimbursed for two meetings.

Questions regarding the election process, guidelines and ­eligibility requirements should be directed to Linda Ford.
