  • Officers are elected during odd-numbered years for a two (2) year commitment, taking office on 1 July after the election.

  • Service directors take office at the next directors' meeting immediately after their election.

  • Service directors who resign or can no longer serve are replaced by the board of directors before their term expires.

  • Nominees for officer positions must personally confirm with the Secretary that they are willing to serve in the nominated position.

  • Nominations not followed upon or accompanied by email acceptance will not be considered until the ASSC event.

  • NSSA directors are elected through the NSSA election process in even numbered years, not at AFSA membership meetings.
