November 21, 2014 4:22 PM | Anonymous


Hello Members,


Five positions on the OAA Board will be open in January 2015 and we are looking for OAA members who are interesting in filling these seats.  


The open positions are:


President-Elect:   This is a three-year commitment.  The President-Elect serves one year in that position, then automatically assumes the position of President the second year, Past President the third year.  Note:   The President-Elect is not the conference planner.   Conference planning is no longer an elected position; the Board appoints an Education Chair.   Shelly Boelter is the current Education Chair.


Regional Representatives:  Four new regional representatives will be elected, three for a three-year term and one for a two years (fills second At-Large position due to vacancy mid-term.)

      The open positions are:  

1.  Mid-Valley:  Rep from area of Mid-Willamette valley from Woodburn to Eugene, includes central and north Coast.

2.  South/East:  Southern and Eastern Oregon includes the south Coast.

3.  At-Large:   Rep from any region of Oregon

4.  At-Large: (two year years, completes term of Jim Baer who is moving out of state):  Rep from any region of Oregon

The Board meets at (minimum two times per year.    Board members have the opportunity of attending meetings via an online chat (feature TBD) and meetings will be about 90 minutes.   Board meetings for the upcoming year will focus on OAA business; conference planning, bylaw revisions, website development, student involvement, pediatric concerns and other state/national issues, etc. 

The first Board meeting will be in January.   date to be determined.

I encourage each of you to consider serving on the Board as President-Elect or as a Regional Representative.   OAA depends on volunteers to make this organization the voice of the profession of audiology in Oregon. 

Please reply to this email if you want to volunteer for President-Elect or one of the four open positions for Regional Representative.  The names of all those interested will be put on the ballot for the election that will be held in December.

Thank you in advance,
