Your AMWA 2020-2021 Officer Nominees
Monday, August 31, 2020
The AMWA Nominating Committee recently reviewed eligible candidates who expressed interest in the positions of Secretary, Treasurer, and President-Elect of AMWA. The following candidates were selected and subsequently approved by the AMWA Board Directors (BOD):
President-Elect: Katrina R. Burton, BS
Secretary: R. Michelle Sauer Gehring, PhD, ELS
Treasurer: Julie Phelan, MD, MBA
According to AMWA's bylaws (Article IV.2e), additional nominations for these positions may be made by any member whose dues and special assessments are current, provided that it is submitted in writing to the Secretary of AMWA at least 30 days before the annual business meeting. Such a nomination must clearly state the qualifications of the candidate, be signed by 50 members in good standing as of the date of the receipt of the nomination, and be accompanied by a letter from the candidate stating that he or she is willing to serve if elected.
The officer election will take place at the 2020 Annual Business Meeting, currently scheduled for November 6, 2020. More information about this virtual meeting will be shared soon. Learn more about the officer nominees in an upcoming article in the Fall 2020 AMWA Journal.
