Our bylaws-driven process for selecting the slate of nominees for the 2025 AHMP Board is a four step process:

  1. We announce that we are seeking nominees. Nominees are provided with a job description, a nomination form seeking information on the nominee’s experience with AHMP national committees, AHMP chapter management, or other non-profit organizations, and other documents including Confidentiality, Commitment (personal, as well as employer authorization), and Conflict of Interest forms. Within 30 days of the announcement, each nominee must send a completed forms package back to the AHMP Leadership Committee.

  2. Nominees are evaluated and the committee shall then propose not more than nine candidates for the open positions. This slate of nominees is then announced to AHMP members.

  3. Upon announcement of the slate, AHMP opens a 30-day window in which we again ask for nominations from the floor. Any member can submit a nomination for themselves or others. If nominations are made, nominations are reviewed for basic minimum qualifications. Those meeting the qualification standards are added to the slate and an election is held.

  4. Following an election, the 2025 Board is announced.

Director-at-Large positions are for three years. Participation in all board meetings and functions is expected. There are typically four to six board meetings per year held by videoconference and one in-person meeting at the National Conference.
