State Officer Election

An officer’s year is one of exciting challenges, countless opportunities and life-long friendships. Holding a State Office comes with responsibilities and requires a time commitment, but it’s an experience that will help members grow their leadership and personal skills!

Before choosing to run for State Office, please review the State Officer Election policy, which was approved by the Board of Directors in November 2023. This policy details the process by which State Officers are elected and outlines the requirements for all candidates. Completed State Officer Candidate applications and accompanying Personal Profile Sheets should be submitted to the State Adviser by February 15, 2024.
