    Nominations for our 2021 Executive Board officially closed yesterday, 25 Oct, as communicated. We appreciate everyone who participated in the process, and will now move to verify each nomination to ensure that the nominee accepts the nomination. 

    Once everything is verified, we'll begin the election process at our November meeting on 08 Nov. Elections will be held online via our chapter website, and then the 2021 board will be installed at our December meeting, likely also held online. 

    AATW!

    Chicago Chapter: 

    It's time to start the process for electing our chapter's Executive Board for 2021. Per our By Laws, we hold nominations in October, elections in November, and then install the new board after that (we've been doing this at our Holiday Party in December). 

    Here, we'd like to ask for your nominations for board positions, consisting of the Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer -- see below for descriptions. You may nominate yourself or another Chicago Chapter member for any position. The current board will verify that each nominee accepts the nomination. We then will form up the ballot and distribute them in November for voting.  

    This is the first time we've solicited nominations online, so please contribute to show your support. Only Chicago Chapter members may participate. You must be logged in to the chapter website to participate. If you have any questions, email info@chicagoairborne.com.
