Executive Board Election Process

Alpha Omicron Pi 2017-2019 Executive Board Election Process

The process to elect the Executive Board for the 2017-2019 biennium has begun. The Nominating Trustees (NTs) have been selected and are prepared to screen, evaluate, and recommend candidates for the election at the AOII International Convention in June 2017.

 Who can be considered for an Executive Board position?

  • All sisters who have had alumna status for at least eight years are encouraged to review the Volunteer Position Description on the Executive Board Election Process webpage (under “About” and “Opportunities”) to see if they meet the minimum qualifications listed.

You can get involved: 

  • Encourage sisters to identify other sisters that would make great candidates for the Executive Board.
  • Encourage sisters to talk to current AOII volunteers and current XB members to learn about the role.
  • Encourage anyone interested in an XB position to submit an Interest Form.
  • Suggest an alumna you think would represent the Fraternity well on the Executive Board.
  • Email your suggestions to nt@alphaomicronpi.org or reach out to her yourself! The NTs will contact the alumna and encourage her to submit an Interest Form.
  • All positions on the Executive Board are open for candidacy.
