In accordance with its bylaws, the American Humanist Association (AHA) has conducted an election for seven positions on the AHA Board of Directors. All AHA members in good standing received a ballot via e-mail through eBallot, a third-party voting site, and/or were notified through theHumanist.com. Voting opened on September 29th and closed on October 13th.
Elected to four year terms are: Kelly Damerow, Erik Gregory, John Hooper, Vanessa Gomez Brake, Candace Gorham, and Darin Stewart. Elected to a two-year term is: Jill Martinez.
The AHA thanks the members of the Nominating Committee—Kevin Bolling, Evan Clark, Jé Hooper, Sarah Levin, and Leika Lewis-Cornwell—for volunteering their time. The AHA wishes to recognize Jim Palmquist, who also stood for election.
Thank you to all who participated in this election, continuing the AHA’s tradition of being the largest democratic humanist organization in the United States.
