APAI Officer Nominations

APAI Officer Nominations Will Open January 7, 2024

President and Treasurer nominations will be accepted.

As the annual conference approaches, it is time to think about the upcoming officer nominations and elections. The official election will take place during the Annual Training Conference. Elected officers are announced at the Annual Business Meeting, which will be held on Tuesday, May 7, 2024. The business meeting will be held in conjunction with the Annual Awards Luncheon.

The APAI Constitution states that elected officers shall serve two-year terms and may not serve for more than two elected consecutive terms in the same office. The office of President and Treasurer shall become vacant on even numbered years, while the office of Vice President and Secretary shall become vacant on odd numbered years (2024). Newly elected officers will assume their duties of office on July 1, 2024.

The APAI bylaws state,
“The President shall be the Chief Executive Officer of the Association, speak on the behalf of the Association, and preside over all meeting of the Association. The President shall appoint Regional Vice Presidents and serve on the Executive and Finance Committees. The President shall oversee the activities of all officers, function as the liaison between the Executive Director and the Executive Committee, and be responsible for the coordination of communications between the Association membership and other criminal justice professionals and organizations.”

The bylaws also state,
“The Treasurer shall oversee all financial affairs of the Association and provide information and support to the Finance Committee. The Treasurer and Executive Director shall submit an annual budget containing personnel, operating and related fiscal information to the Executive Committee for approval a minimum of sixty days prior to consideration. The Treasurer shall present the Executive Committee approved Association budget to the membership at the Annual Business Meeting. The spending of funds not approved in the current budget shall require the authorization of the Treasurer, President, Vice President and Executive Director. The Treasurer shall perform such other tasks as the President may assign.”

If you know of a co-worker or a professional colleague you have gotten to know over the years who would be a perfect fit, please contact the APAI Executive Director or anyone on the Executive Committee.

If you would like to nominate someone for either position or have an interest of your own, please reach out to:
