Help determine our future leaders.

The ASLA Nominating Committee will convene during the upcoming annual meeting in Los Angeles to prepare the 2018 national officer slate. The committee requests your help now in identifying potential candidates for the following offices: 

  • 2019 President-Elect
  • 2019-20 Vice President, Finance
  • 2019-20 Vice President, Membership 
  • 2019-20 Vice President, Professional Practice. 

Your participation in the process is extremely important and very much appreciated. Please review the information below on eligibility and officer roles/responsibilities and forward your suggestions to Corporate Secretary Curt Millay by Friday, August 11, 2017. Putting your own hat in the ring is perfectly fine. All individuals whose names are put forward will be contacted once the call closes to determine their willingness to run and will be asked for a brief summary of their interests and experience.

Candidates for president-elect must be Full Members of the Society and must have completed at least one full term as a chapter trustee or national vice president prior to installation as president-elect. Candidates for vice president must be Full Members.

Officers are members of the Board of Trustees and serve on the Executive Committee (ExCom). The ExCom: 

  • Serves as the administrative committee of the Board of Trustees (BOT), implements policy, and acts for the BOT between meetings of the board
  • Serves as the strategic planning committee of the Board of Trustees
  • Reviews and recommends annual operating plans and budgets to the Board of Trustees
  • Selects the executive vice president/CEO and annually reviews the incumbent’s performance. 

The Executive Committee meets quarterly, twice in conjunction with meetings of the Board of Trustees (at midyear and just prior to the annual meeting) and twice on its own (mid-winter and mid-summer), and holds monthly conference calls.

Vice presidents for communications, education, and government affairs also serve on the ExCom and were recently elected to serve the 2018 through 2019 terms. You can read the descriptions of all the positions here.
