The SMDM Board of Trustees and Officers election is now open

This year, SMDM members are electing a President-Elect, Vice President-Elect, and 3 Trustees, one of whom will be designated as an International Trustee.

The process for electing the International Trustee is as follows:

  • Among the nominees for the three Trustee positions, the Nominating Committee has selected two candidates who are eligible for the International Trustee position as identified on the ballot. Of the two nominees, the nominee with the most votes will be elected to that position.

  • Of the remaining nominees, the two nominees with the most votes will be elected as Trustees of the Board.
