Nominations for APS Committees

Nomination Deadline: Friday, August 10, 2018

Selecting excellent leadership is essential to the continued health of any organization. APS Committees play a major role in guiding APS's programmatic activities.

Both the nominees and nominators must be current members, and nominators are welcome to submit multiple prospects. All submissions will be reviewed by the APS Committee on Committees, who will draw up a slate of candidates for the President-elect to appoint to serve on 2019 committees.

Nominations are accepted year-round through our online form, but to be considered for a 2019 appointment APS must receive nominating information by August 10, 2018. You may submit nominations through the online form, or email identifying the person you are nominating, along with the necessary information.
