The voting period for AHCJ’s board of directors will close at noon Central time today. A link to the ballot was emailed to all qualified AHCJ members.
Each year, members in AHCJ’s professional category elect members of the board. Six of the 12 director positions come up for election each year for two-year terms.
The nine candidates have offered outlines of their background and their vision for the organization. Those statements are available for members to review.
AHCJ is built on the wisdom, experience and energy of its members. It is what makes AHCJ a professional home for so many journalists.
Board members are responsible for association policies and statements and work with the executive director on training, financial and other efforts to achieve AHCJ’s strategic goals. They take on committee duties and contribute to association activities, including fundraising, advocacy, helping plan sessions at training events, membership outreach and writing/editing contributions.
Members have been sent an email with the special ballot link. Your vote will remain confidential, although staff will be able to track whether someone attempts to vote more than once. Any duplicate votes used through that special link will cause all votes by that member to be voided.
Please check your email for the link to your ballot and participate in selecting AHCJ’s leadership. If you haven’t received a ballot, please check your “junk” or “spam” folder. If you don’t see it there, please email email@example.com right away.
