Election at May Meeting


Per FFAM Bylaws 5/6/18 > Article V – Officers and District Directors, all Officers will be elected on a 4-year term and Directors will be elected on a 3-year term.

Officers and Directors shall be nominated by the Nominating Committee and elected by a majority vote of the duly authorized delegates at an annual convention. Nominations for office must be submitted before the convention by March 1st. Each nominee will be reviewed by the Nominating Committee to insure valid membership of the candidate before submission for election at the annual convention. Upon review, if a candidate is found to be ineligible or not in good standing with the FFAM, that nomination will be void for that year’s election. All open positions and duly approved candidates shall be posted on the FFAM website no later than March 15th. In the event no candidate is nominated or in the event that a vacancy occurs in mid-term, it shall fall upon the President to present a name for office to be reviewed and approved by the Board of Directors.
