Your participation in the process is extremely important to ensure ASLA has a diverse pool of candidates.

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.

Eligibility

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.
