AGMA kicked off its 2023 National Officer and Governor Election on February 1. Members who want to shape AGMA’s future are encouraged to run for office!

DEADLINE REMINDER: Completed and signed CANDIDATE MATERIALS FORMS AND completed and signed NOMINATING PETITION FORMS must be received by the AGMA National Office no later than 5:00 p.m. ET on March 1, 2023.

KEEP IN MIND: All Candidates will be informed whether they have met the qualifications to run for office on or around March 20, 2023. AGMA staff will confirm that materials have been received but will not confirm that a candidate has provided a sufficient number of valid signatures or met the eligibility requirements prior to March 20, 2023.
