Welcome to the Association of Professional Researchers for Advancement (APRA), Northwest Chapter
Apra NW election nominations are open!
Call for candidates!
How to nominate someone:
Any current Apra NW member is eligible to serve on the board. If you're not yet a member, we can sign you up!
It is 100% okay to nominate yourself! You can nominate someone else, too - the board will reach out to confirm his/her candidacy.
The nomination deadline is 11 pm Sunday, May 14! Before announcing the ballot, the board will follow up with nominees, starting on Monday, May 15.
New this year:
Candidates can be nominated for more-than-one board position!
An instant-runoff system is being introduced this year to encourage more members to run for office.
If a candidate wins more than one position, the board will confer with that person to decide which role s/he will fill. The first runner-up for the other position would be asked to join the board.
