USBA ELECTION! NOMINATION PERIOD BEGINS ON MAY 1

The USBA four-year election cycle is upon us. All 7 positions on the Board of Directors are open for election. The new board, once elected, will select one of the board members to be the President and Chairman of the Board.

The nomination period begins on May 1, 2022 and runs until and including May 31, 2022.

Board membership requires participation in policy-making decisions, promotional efforts, sponsorship efforts, tournament planning and more. Directors must be USBA members in good standing.

A person being nominated must be a member in good standing of the USBA at the time he or she is nominated.

Membership status can be checked on the website in the Members Area. If you cannot log in to the Members Area, most likely your membership is not valid. Any questions about membership should be directed to secretary [AT] usba [DOT] net.

A member may nominate no more than 7 persons. If a member nominates more than 7 persons, only the first 7 listed or made will be counted.

The USBA Secretary will review all nominations immediately after the nomination period to determine whether the nomination was proper and timely. A Nominee must agree to run as a candidate.
