Nominations for five positions on ASHA’s 2018–2020 Board of Directors, 17 seats on the Audiology Advisory Council, and 19 seats on the Speech-Language Pathology Advisory Council are open through Dec. 6.
The term of office for all positions is Jan. 1, 2018, to Dec. 31, 2020.
“The annual election process benefits all ASHA members by providing the ongoing leadership for our association,” says Judith L. Page, chair of the 2016 Committee on Nominations and Elections and ASHA immediate past president.
“We are asking members to play an important role in this process by nominating people to serve on the Advisory Councils and the Board of Directors. Your nominations will help us identify members who have the skills and commitment to strengthen and advance our professions.”
Board of Directors
Nominees should be ASHA members who have a willingness to engage in active deliberation, leadership skills that will advance ASHA’s strategic plan, and a commitment to addressing the professional needs of audiologists and speech-language pathologists.
The open Board of Directors positions are:
  • President-elect (one year each as president-elect, president and past president)

  • Vice president for finance

  • Vice president for government relations and public policy

  • Vice president for speech-language pathology practice

  • Vice president for standards and ethics in audiology

Advisory Councils
ASHA’s Advisory Councils offer an early step to future ASHA leadership positions. Nominees should have an interest in advising and supporting the work of ASHA’s Board of Directors, enjoy taking part in active discussion on critical professional issues, and be willing to volunteer time and talent to advance the professions. Consider nominating an ASHA member or submitting a self-nomination (which is strongly encouraged).
