ANNY Election 2019

On February 25, 2019 all ANNY members in good standing will be asked to cast votes for several ballot items (election ballot to be sent via email).

Bylaws Transition - Extension of Current Terms

In the 2018 elections, bylaw changes were approved by the ANNY membership.  As we transition to the new board membership and election provisions, we ask you, our members, to approve one-year term extensions for two current board members; this will help facilitate the transition between the old bylaws and the new.

President Elect/President/Past President - Andrea Barra (Assistant Director of Assessment at Georgia College and State University)

Andrea is currently serving as President Elect and will be ANNY's President beginning in April 2019.  Her current term is set to expire in April 2020. We request approval for a one-year term extension for Andrea (to April 2021) so she can complete the three year commitment as Past President. 

Secretary - Nancy DeRiggi (Assistant Vice President of Planning, Assessment and Institutional Research at Pace University)

Nancy is currently serving as Secretary and her current term is set to expire this April.  Secretary is now a two-year term that will be up for election in 2020 (opposite years as Treasurer).  We request approval for a one-year term extension for Nancy (to April 2020) so she can complete the two year commitment as Secretary.
