All AMSAT-NA members,
We are approaching that time of year to submit nominations to serve on the Board of Directors. This year there will be seats for 3 full members, and up to 2 alternates, to be filled. This is your opportunity to influence the leadership, and future, of our organization. The deadline for nominations is June 15th, but that time will creep up remarkably quickly. If you are interested in serving, know someone who is, or who should be, now would be a good time to begin the process. The process details are available through the ANS, WWW.AMSAT.ORG, and the information below. Please contact me if you have any questions.

AMSAT-NA Board of Directors Nominations
It is time to submit nominations for the upcoming open seats on the AMSAT-NA Board of Directors. A valid nomination requires either one current Member Society, or five current individual members in good standing, to nominate an AMSAT-NA member for the position.
Three directors have terms expiring this year: Tom Clark, K3IO; Lou McFadin, W5DID; and Gould Smith, WA4SXM. The three nominees receiving the highest number of votes will be seated as regular board members with two year terms. The two nominees receiving the next highest number of votes will be seated as alternates for one year.
Written nominations, consisting of names, calls and individual signatures, should be mailed to: AMSAT-NA, 850 Sligo Ave #600, Silver Spring, MD, 20910. They must be received no later than June 15th. No other action is required.
Nominations may also be made by electronic means. These include e-mail, FAX, or electronic image of a petition. Electronic petitions should be sent to [email protected] or faxed to 301-608-3410, and also must be received by June 15th. If using any electronic submission, there is a second, verifying step. ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS WITHOUT THIS SECOND, WRITTEN VERIFICATION ARE NOT VALID UNDER THE EXISTING AMSAT-NA BYLAWS. A verifying traditional written petition MUST be received at the AMSAT-NA office at the above address within 7 days following the close of nominations.
