Seeking Nominations for SASFAA Leadership Positions


Dear SASFAA Family,

One of the greatest opportunities we have as professionals is the opportunity to serve in leadership for our professional association.  SASFAA is seeking nominations for qualified individuals to lead us into the future.  The willingness of our members to give of their time, talents, and leadership is what keeps SASFAA strong, and a recognized leader for our profession.

This year we will be seeking nominations for President-Elect and Secretary.  Please provide your nominations to me at by September 20, 2021.  All nominations should include a copy of the individuals vita.

As a reminder, before nominating a person for a position, please contact them to make sure they are willing to serve.  Once the nominations are received, the Committee will review all recommendations and present a dual slate to the membership before the election polls open.

Thank you for taking the time to nominate qualified individuals. These important positions are vital to our continued success as an organization.
