Each August, the AOA board of directors will announce a membership drive for renewing members in the upcoming membership year.
With your membership support we can continue to improve and build the industry through collaboration and information sharing. Please renew your membership today.
Each year, nominations for new officers and directors will close on Labor day. A nomination form is located in the member resources section of the AOA website. Nominees for an Officer or Director position must be current paid members and a member may only be nominated for one position. Any member wishing to vote must also be a current paid member. All Officer positions are for terms of one year and Directors are for terms of two years. Only half of the Directors (currently there are 4 Director positions on the Board) may sit for election each year. There are currently only three Officer positions, President, Vice-President, and Secretary/Treasurer. The immediate Past-President is entitled to a seat for the next year on the Board. The results of an election are announced by the President at the annual meeting and the terms begin immediately following the end of the annual meeting.
Voting for nominees closes September 30, and the results will be announced October 1. New officers/directors become effective at the November annual meeting.
