With this in mind and on behalf of OA A, I notify the membership that the association is accepting nominations for the board of directors. The OA A Delegate Assembly (OA A's voting body) will meet on October 6, 2017 during OptiCon to elect a new executive committee and board of directors. The following positions are open for nominations: president, first vice president, second vice president, treasurer, two people to serve as directors representing individual members, one to serve as the director representing firm members, one director representing state associations and societies and two to serve as at-large directors. According to the OA A bylaws, to nominate someone to serve as a board director or officer, you must be an OA A honored fellow or guild-firm member in good standing and the individual being nominated must be an OA A honored fellow or guild-firm member in good standing. The position of director representing firm membership must be filled by a firm or guild member.
