NEHA is governed by a corporate board of directors that oversees the affairs of the association. There will be four board positions up for election in 2018:
* Region 2 vice-president (represents Arizona, California, Hawaii, and Nevada; 3-year term);
* Region 3 vice-president (represents Colorado, Montana, Utah, Wyoming, and members residing outside of the U.S. [except members of the U.S. armed forces]; 3-year term);
* Region 8 vice-president (represents Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington, DC, West Virginia, and members of the U.S. armed forces residing outside of the U.S.; 3-year term); and
* second vice-president (national officer; 5-year term that progresses through the national offices and will serve as NEHA president in 2021-2022).
We seek diversity on the board in terms of gender, ethnicity, and a balance between regulatory, academia, and industry professionals. Most importantly, we want people who will help us develop a new strategic vision, have experience managing diverse organizations, and can open doors for NEHA in building relationships with industry, academia, federal and state agencies, foundations, and other associations.
