The National Press Photographers Association has extended its deadline to November 10, 2017, for accepting nominations for candidates for its Board of Directors and Regional Chairs.
There are two seats on the Board of Directors that will be filled under new procedures guaranteeing representation from the video/broadcast and still/print segments of the NPPA membership. Those seats held by Katie Schoolov and Ross Taylor will be vacated at the end of 2017. Schoolov and Taylor are eligible to run for reelection.
The Midwest, South, and Southeast Regions will also elect their regional chairs for three-year terms. The newly elected regional chairs will appoint associate regional chairs and local grassroots leaders in metro areas with high membership concentration.
Candidates are entitled to submit a photograph and biographical material, which will be posted on the NPPA website. A candidate must be an NPPA professional or student member in good standing before being nominated to be eligible for the board of directors,
NPPA members interested in running for any of these offices can nominate themselves by contacting NPPA Secretary Seth Gitner at [email protected]. Members may also nominate others. Please specify in your nomination message which seat - video/tv/broadcast or still/newspaper/print - you are nominating. For more information or questions, email [email protected].
