Each year American Whitewater’s membership ratifies Board of Director members to serve
three-year terms. These candidates volunteer to serve on the American Whitewater Board. Current
American Whitewater members can cast their votes through Midnight Pacific Time, December 15th.
Currently, American Whitewater has four Director Nominees to fill four open seats for election,
you may vote for up to four candidates on the slate. The ballot for our Board of Directors
election is placed online here

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. 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.
Organizational governance and the continuity of such governance are key responsibilities of our
Board of Directors. American Whitewater is very fortunate to have Board members with a passion
for our mission and a mix of appropriate skills to help guide AW and meet the challenges we face,
both now and in the future. Thank you for your participation in this important election process.
