DURHAM, NC (August 23, 2014) – The National Press Photographers Association is accepting nominations for candidates for its board of directors and regional officers until September 30, NPPA national secretary Michael P. King announced today.
Two seats on the Board of Directors currently held by Brad Pfranger and Greg Smith will be vacated at the end of 2014. Pfranger and Smith are allowed to run for reelection, King said. There are a total of six elected directors serving staggered, 3-year terms. Two seats are up for election each November.
Additionally, members in Regions 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 will choose their Regional Chairs and Associate Regional Chairs. These regional officers are elected every two years: elections for even-numbered regions are conducted in even-numbered years, while elections for odd-numbered regions are conducted in odd-numbered years.
Members will be able to vote online for these positions on the NPPA.org Web site during the entire month of November. Candidate bios and statements will be posted in October.
NPPA members interested in running for any of these offices may self-nominate by contacting King at [email protected]. Members may also nominate others. Questions or concerns can also be directed to King.
To be eligible for election to the board of directors or for Regional office, a nominee must be an NPPA Professional or Student Member in good standing.
