It's NAPNAP Election Season!

Learn more about the 2020 candidates for NAPNAP president-elect, treasurer, member-at-large and Nominations Committee member! Click on the "About the Candidate" link to the right of each candidate's name to read about their goals, experience and thoughts about the profession and association. Some candidates also opted to record audio or video clips. You can access the clips by clicking on the "Personal Message" link to the right of the candidate's name.

NOTE - Our election cycle is shorter this year. You only have from March 9-27 to make your choices known. Don't miss out on this opportunity to let your voice be heard!

Meet Your Candidates!

There are multiple opportunities for you to hear from and meet NAPNAP candidates prior to the March 27 voting deadline - by reading about them on this webpage and at NAPNAP's 2020 National Conference in Long Beach, Calif. We encourage you to take time to get to know your potential leaders and make informed choices.
