NACCHO Elections

The 2019 Call for Nominations for the NACCHO Board of Directors is OPEN!

For 2019, NACCHO is seeking 5 At-Large Directors represented by size of jurisdiction and one Vice President. The at-large directors are elected to three-year terms beginning July 1, 2019 and ending on June 30, 2022 and the Vice President is elected to a successive four-year term, first serving as Vice President, then President Elect, then President, and finally Immediate Past President beginning July 1, 2019 and ending on June 30, 2023.

The timeline for the 2019 elections is as follows:

  • March 4 to April 1: Call for Nominations Open
  • May 1 to May 22: Voting Open
  • Week of June 3: Candidates Notified
  • July 1: New terms begin

The Nominations Committee of the Board of Directors is committed to ensuring the candidate pool is diverse in every sense of the word, representative of NACCHO’s membership, and can provide insights into local public health to advance NACCHO’s strategic goals.

The current NACCHO By-Laws allow for a local health department's chief executive officer or designee (defined as an employee and a member of the management team of the member department) to hold office including as a member of the Board of Directors. However, given the recent changes in NACCHO By-Laws that went into effect in 2018 with a reduction in At-Large Board seats (decreasing from 10 to 5 seats), the Nominations Committee encourages nominees to be at the level of the LHD chief executive officer to ensure the NACCHO Board is comprised of individuals representing the highest level of local health department leadership.

If you are interested in running for NACCHO's Board of Directors, please take a minute to review the document, Expectations and Benefits of NACCHO Board Members, listed a little further down this page. Completed nominations packets are due to NACCHO by no later than Monday, April 1 at 11:59pm Eastern time. Late applications will not be accepted.

Dues-paying members in good standing will be emailed information about voting in NACCHO elections at least two weeks in advance of the start of elections.

Questions about elections may be sent to elections@naccho.org.
