Nominating by Petition icon
Members have the option to nominate by petition. Candidates, other than individuals on the Nominating Committee's slate, may be nominated by petition for Officer and Director vacancies. Acceptable petitions must:

  • Be signed by 200 or more ANS voting members;
  • Contain the original signature of each petitioner;
  • Have the nominee's written consent; and
  • Be in the Office of the ANS Executive Director at least 22 weeks prior to the Annual Meeting. Petitions for the 2015 national election are due at ANS Headquarters no later than January 5, 2015 (no extensions).

Ballots for the 2014 2015 election will be mailed on February 23, 2015. As ratified by the ANS membership in June 1997, there is no longer balloting at the Annual Meeting. Therefore, the mail ballots for the Board of Directors election must be returned and received no later than 12 noon on Tuesday, April 7, 2015.
