ARSL board election are coming!

Nominations for the ARSL board are now closed and the nominating committee has met to determine the list of names put forth on the ballot.

Due to a recent resignation, we are looking to fill six board positions. Two of the nine applicants will be current members, up for a second term.

We anticipate having a ballot with the nine individuals available by mid-June. The election will close in mid-July and the new board members will be notified shortly thereafter.

Short applicant statements will be made available to members to inform your vote. We look forward to your participation in this year’s ARSL board election!
