2017 PRSM Association Board of Directors Elections


PRSM Association’s Nominating Committee is requesting nominations from the membership for the Board of Directors for a three-year term beginning in April 2017. The committee is charged with selecting fully qualified and experienced leaders in each category, retail and supplier, for the Board of Directors’ elections per the Association’s Bylaws.

The 2017 Board election will consist of four (4) open seats, two (2) retail and two (2) supplier directors, resulting in a 12-member Board of Directors who each serve three-year rotating terms. In addition, two alternates (one retail member and one supplier member) will be appointed as non-voting Board Members available to fill a Board seat should a vacancy occur.

The success PRSM has enjoyed in recent years is directly related to member involvement. PRSM’s future success will be driven by individuals you nominate and elect to the PRSM Board. If you want to make a difference, get involved. Nominate someone you know is qualified and, most importantly, vote in the election. Self-nominations are accepted, and you may nominate more than one PRSM member.

Nominations are being accepted until Friday, January 27, 2017 (5:00 pm PST), for candidates to be nominated for the official ballot for a three-year term commencing in April 2017. The PRSM Association Nominating Committee will review each nominee’s qualifications in depth. PRSM Association Primary Members will vote on the final slate of nominees for the Board of Directors in March 2017. Newly elected Board Members will take office at PRSM2017 National Conference, April 18, 2017 in Dallas, TX.
