Vote for SAME Board of Direction


The SAME National Leadership Team is committed to finding dedicated volunteer leaders who are steeped in a broad range of SAME experiences over time and who have a solid foundation of proven Post level achievement. We need your active involvement to find the “best of the best” to serve as SAME National Officers and Elected Directors.

SAME has initiated a National Leadership Nomination process that is inclusive, transparent and equitable. The process establishes separate nominating committees for National Officers and for Elected Directors. The respective nominating committees then will determine the candidates who will be voted on by the entire Society membership during online elections, which be held from March 1 through April 15, 2022. Please ensure that you have read the President's Guidance to the nominating committees and the Nominating Procedures prior to submitting.

Want to learn more? SAME's Key Leadership Development Commission hosted a webinar Sept. 30 with information on national leadership positions within SAME, and what being a volunteer leader within the Society can do for you personally and professionally.
