Nomination and Election Committee-HoD

The Nomination and Election Committee shall consist of one (1) member from each Region and Section with not less than seven hundred and fifty (750) members and one (1) additional member from each Region and Section with more than five thousand (5,000) members. The members including a Chair shall be appointed for one (1) year terms. This committee will present to the annual meeting of the House a slate or slates of two (2) nominees for each of the officers to be elected by the House. The slate or slates with factual background data concerning each candidate shall be given to the Chair of the House of Delegates by September 30th of each year for publication in The Delegates'Voice. In addition to the above duties, the Nomination and Election Committee shall be responsible for the administration of the election at the annual meeting. This shall consist of the distribution, collection, counting and reporting the results of the balloting pertaining to the election of officers. No member of the Nomination and Election Committee, while serving on that Committee, shall be considered for nomination as a House of Delegates officer. Each year the Committee shall submit a confidential report to the Chair-Elect listing each individual considered that year for nomination by the Committee but who was unavailable or ineligible for nomination, and the names of people not recommended for nomination. The report shall be provided by the Chair-Elect, upon his or her becoming Chair, to the Nomination and Election Committee serving during his or her term of office; provided, however, that the report shall at all times be kept confidential.


Five amendments have been proposed to the AAPG Bylaws for consideration at the meeting of the House of Delegates on 31 May 2015 in Denver, Colorado. After publishing the proposed amendments on February 27, several members questioned whether the proposed changes to Article II, Section 11, would be handled as one amendment or two.

The HoD leadership intends that these changes be evaluated separately by the delegates. The exhibits were updated March 2 to reflect that fact.

Please contact your delegate with your comments and questions.
