As required by the American Whitewater bylaws, the Nominating Committee of American Whitewater is responsible for the process of identifying, recruiting and nominating diverse, highly-qualified nominees for the board. This is done by a thorough review of incumbent, self-nominated and recruited nominees. All nominees are assessed against selection criteria set by the board.
The American Whitewater Board of Directors can have a maximum of 12 independent directors. Directors serve three-year volunteer terms and are elected by a majority vote of active American Whitewater members. For a nominee to be seated, the majority of ballots cast must be affirmative (for). Any nominee who fails to receive a majority "for" vote will not be seated and the position may be filled by board appointment until the next election cycle. Based on nominee qualifications, the committee strongly recommends a "for" vote for all nominees.
Deadline for submitting electronic ballots is December 13, 2022, midnight PT. Thank you for your participation in this important election process. You must be a current American Whitewater member to be eligible to vote for directors.
