It's time to self-nominate for the annual IAMSLIC elections! This year we will be electing a Secretary, and a Junior Vice President-Elect.
These are both excellent professional development and leadership opportunities.
The IAMSLIC bylaws describe the duties and our procedures for the election. The Junior President-Elect commitment is for 3 years (and includes Senior President-Elect, and President). The secretary commitment is for 2 years with the ability for re-election. Details are below.
