Midwest Elections

We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated, committed members to join our next executive board next year! At the Regional Conference we will be holding our annual election for positions on the LMSA Midwest E-Board. Applications for a position must be submitted to the Chief Information Officer, Manuel Davila-Molina, at by January 10th, 2017. Each applicant may only submit an application for a single position. However, nominations from the floor at the conference will be accepted which allows persons to run for a second position if they are not elected for their first choice position. For each position, each candidate will have three minutes for a speech, and three minutes for questions before a majority vote from the members present decides the elected individual. E-board positions and descriptions, as well as full election process details can be found on the Elections Page. Please direct any questions regarding elections to *NOTE: applicants do NOT need to be in attendance at the conference to run for a position”
