Officer Nominations

The Nominating Committee accepts nominations for the slate of officers in each fiscal year. The first vice president is presumed to be nominated for the presidency; therefore, recommendations and nominations are accepted for the first vice president, second vice president, third vice president, secretary and treasurer.   

Officers serve as the Executive Committee of the AAPL board of directors. The deadline to submit nominations for the next fiscal year is Jan.10. Information about the new officer slate will be posted in early March. All AAPL Active Members will receive an electronic ballot with an election deadline 30 days before the Annual Meeting.

Nominate a Leader

Every year the Nominating Subcommittee seeks input and nominations for the next slate of volunteer leadership positions for AAPL’s Executive Committee. The future direction of AAPL depends on our ability to nominate strong, experienced leaders that can guide our association and our profession through the ever-changing and evolving land profession. It is more critical now than ever that we nominate strong, competent individuals to lead our association.

*First vice president nominees must commit to three years of service (first vice president, president and immediate past president). Second and third vice president nominees will have a second year of committee leadership service in the Landman Scholarship Trust or the Educational Foundation.
