While the next AGMA National Election is not until 2023, AGMA wishes to remind its members of new eligibility requirements for National Elections stemming from recent changes to AGMA’s Constitution.

An email containing this information was sent to AGMA members on September 27, 2021.

While the next AGMA National Election is not until 2023, AGMA wishes to remind its members of new eligibility requirements for National Elections stemming from recent changes to AGMA’s Constitution. AGMA’s Constitution can be accessed through the MyAGMA Portal under the “Policies and Procedures” section.

In the 2021 National Election, the Nomination period began on February 1, 2021. While the AGMA Board of Governors has not yet determined when the Nomination period will begin for the 2023 National Election, members potentially interested in running for AGMA Office or a seat on the Board of Governors in 2023 are advised to keep the eligibility requirements outlined below in mind when updating their Employment Category and Region with AGMA’s Membership Department and are encouraged to update their information by December 31, 2021.

Article XI of the Constitution (“Nomination and Election”) contains new eligibility requirements for Officer and Non-Officer Board of Governor positions. In addition to work requirements set forth in this Article, to be eligible to serve as an Employment Category Vice President, a member must have been a declared member of that Employment Category for the twelve (12) months prior to the date of their nomination, and to be eligible to serve as a Regional Vice President, a member must have been a declared member of that Region for the twelve (12) months prior to the date of their nomination.

Similarly, in addition to work and other eligibility requirements set forth in Article XI, to be eligible to serve as an Employment Category Governor on the Board, a member must have been a declared member of that Employment Category and Region for the twelve (12) months prior to the date of their nomination and to be eligible to serve as an At-Large Governor on the Board, a member must have been a declared member of the Area for the twelve (12) months prior to the date of their nomination.

As a reminder, all potential Nominees and Candidates are responsible for reading, understanding, and complying with the full eligibility requirements contained in the Constitution and Bylaws.

AGMA will continue to send updates to members as additional information about the 2023 National Election becomes available.
