DEADLINE: Extended to January 31, 2020.
The SAME National Leadership Team is committed to finding dedicated volunteer leaders who are steeped in a broad range of SAME experiences over time and who have a solid foundation of proven Post level achievement. We need your active involvement to find the “best of the best” to serve as SAME National Officers and Elected Directors.
SAME has initiated a National Leadership Nomination process that is inclusive, transparent and equitable. The process establishes separate nominating committees for National Officers and for Elected Directors

The respective nominating committees then will determine the candidates who will be voted on by the entire Society membership during online elections, which be held from March 2 through April 1, 2020.
