Elections & Nominations
The 2023 SPA Leadership Ballot closed on May 31.
Election winner information can be found below.
For the 2022 Election cycle, the following positions are open (please click on a position title to see a job description of each position, including qualifications, duties, and estimated time commitments):
Similar to last year, the committee, whose full roster you can see below, has created a more open and transparent process to identify future SPA leadership. Once the nomination date of January 9 has passed, SPA staff will be in contact with all individuals to share more information about the positions and the process. All individuals nominated will be invited to submit their interest through an application by February 6, and from those that apply, references will be requested by March 1, and the committee will identify a set of finalists to interview during the month of April 2022. The election slate will then be presented to the SPA Board for approval. Once approved, members will be able to vote on the ballot in May 2022, and then the new leaders will join on January 1, 2023.
If you have any questions or concerns about this process, please feel free to reach out to Dr. John McNulty, SPA Past President and Chair of the Nominations and Elections Committee, or Nathan Victoria, SPA Executive Director, through email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
