Please consider running for the board of directors. We need your help, talents, new ideas and leadership to advance our mission. One of the greatest strengths of AAE is our diverse membership which is focused on our common goal.
Information about the Board:
The Board consists of twelve (12) members. Each of these twelve (12) members serves a three (3) year term. A board member can only serve on the board for two (2) completed three year terms. Once the two terms are served, the board member must rotate off the board for two (2) years before reapplying for the board. The 2018 call for nominations has four (4) positions to be filled.
Who can serve? Members in good standing with the Association who have held their AAE membership for at least one year prior to applying are eligible to apply. A committee made up of board members will review the applications and complete an evaluation form on each applicant.
How do I apply? To submit your application to serve, you must send your current CV that highlights your experience relevant to asthma and asthma education, along with a head photo, and a 100-word vision statement for AAE and how your membership on the board will contribute to your vision, to the Chair of the Nominating Committee. Applications will be accepted until August 10, 2018. No late submissions will be accepted.
How is one elected to the board? Once all the applications have been received and reviewed, a slate of candidates for available board positions will be sent to the membership for election by the members. This general election process starts on the first Monday in October, 2018, and closes on October 31, 2018. A notification of acceptance will be sent to successful nominees letting them know of their election to the Board. A notification will also be sent to each person that applied that did not get elected. The newly elected Board of Directors will take effect January 1, 2019.
Board members attend a phone meeting each month, an in-person meeting each year at the annual conference and assist with the planning and executing of AAE activities throughout the year.
Please contact me with any questions. Also, if you can attend the upcoming annual conference, please come talk to any of the board members for more information.
Thank you for your membership, dedication and interest in serving the Association of Asthma Eduators.
