Candidates Announced for APEGA's Election 2018

APEGA Council ElectionThe list of candidates for APEGA’s Election 2018 is set. The annual nomination period is over, and Nominating Committee interviews and recommendations are also complete. In all, 12 APEGA Professional Members are seeking three-year Council terms. Three other Members are running for positions on the APEGA Executive.

The rest is up to you, as Professional Members of APEGA. Find out which candidates you support. Vote during the polling period. And encourage your professional peers to do the same.

In January, full candidate information and detailed voting instructions will be available online and promoted in the e-PEG. Also, to supplement written materials candidates may choose to have APEGA post a video about who they are and why they are running.


Of the three candidates, the one with the most votes becomes President-Elect and the runner-up becomes Vice-President. Each term is for one year, but the President-Elect automatically becomes President in 2019, serving a one-year term in that position, followed by a third year on the executive, as Past-President.
