*As per AAPI Bylaws Section 10.4 G only the ballots received via mail to the specified address by second Friday of April of each election year will be eligible for counting. Since second Friday in April 2017 falls on April 13th, we have to move the deadline mentioned in AAPI Bylaws Section 10.4 I (Results of the elections will be communicated by April 12th of each year) to April 15th due to conflict.
Voters must select three Board of Trustee candidates out of the total number of contestants for BOT election. The ballot will be valid only if three candidates are chosen. If one or two candidates are chosen, the Board of Trustees portion of the ballot will be disqualified.
Candidates submitting nominations to serve as an Officer or to serve on the Board of Trustees are required to submit proof of their service as a member of the Governing Body.
Members of the Governing Body are members of the Executive Committee, members of the
Board of Trustees, Chairs of all the Standing Committees, Chair of the Convention Committee as defined in Section 4.3 and the Presidents of all dues paid/paying member organizations.
