Call for FY 2024 Council Nominations

The Alliance invites all current members to self-nominate for open councilor positions on an association or constituent council in FY 2024.  For this year, AAIM has changed the councilor nomination to a form-based self-nomination process.  Although you must be a current member to nominate yourself, councils have different requirements for councilor eligibility, which you can find below.  All councilor terms are three years, except for the MPPDA Member Representative which is a two year term.  Members may nominate themselves for only one open council position per year. 

Submit Nomination

All self-nominations must be submitted via the online form by Wednesday, October 12, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. EDT; emailed materials will not be accepted.

  • Abide by “Roles, Responsibilities, and Expectations for AAIM Volunteer Leaders
  • Register for and attend Alliance conferences (vaccine verification is required)

Call for FY 2024 Officers

All councils will seek a president-elect/chair-elect for FY 2024; AIM and APDIM will also seek a treasurer.  All officer terms are three years.  To be considered as an officer candidate, you must have served on the respective council in the last five years.

Founding council officers (president, president-elect, past president, and treasurer) are expected to serve on the AAIM Board of Directors or the AAIM Finance and Audit Committee, which have separate meetings and conference call schedules.
