Elections will be held at the Annual Meeting of Voting Members at the ATA Annual Conference.

Who Is Eligible to Be Nominated?

Under ATA’s Bylaws, all Active members of ATA are eligible to run for elected office. Active members are those who have passed an ATA certification exam or who are established as having achieved professional status through Active Membership Review or through ATA’s Credentialed Interpreter recognition process.

Active members must be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. Other membership categories are not eligible to serve as officers or directors. However, any member may submit a nomination.

Members of the Nominating and Leadership Development Committee are not eligible to run for elected office.

Procedure for Adding Nominees to the Slate of Candidates
If a nominee is not added to the slate of candidates by the Nominating and Leadership Development Committee, an individual may still petition to be added by submitting the nomination in writing along with the signatures of at least 60 Voting members endorsing the nomination.

Petitions must be received by the Nominating and Leadership Development Committee no later than 30 calendar days after the first publication by the Board of Directors of the slate of candidates proposed by the Committee.

Submitting Your Nomination
Any ATA member may submit a nomination. Self-nominations are also permitted.

Nominations should be submitted as early as possible so that the Nominating and Leadership Development Committee can fully consider proposed candidates. The deadline for submission is March 1, 2022.

Before submitting a nomination:
1. Contact the nominee first, explaining your intention and the fact that a nomination does not guarantee a formal invitation to run for office.
2. Keep in mind that ATA officers and directors serve on a volunteer basis. Please do not nominate colleagues who express serious concerns about service, or who have conflicting priorities.
