New board members will be elected at the annual Board of Directors meeting on December 3, 2022.

General members may petition nominees to the Nominations Committee for the Board of Directors through Wednesday, October 26, 2022. Petitions may be sent to

Petitions must include:

The Board needs a minimum of seven nominees for the upcoming election, including three current Board members who are eligible for re-election and one to serve for one year (to complete the term of a board member who has resigned). The Board is specifically hoping to increase our representation from communities of color, transgender members, and members with disabilities.
