AURP 2017 Nomination for Board Service

AURP is requesting nominations for the 2017 Board of Directors. All research park members in good standing may nominate themselves, or others, for service on the Board. Board service is for an initial term of three years, with a maximum of two three-year terms allowed.   

We encourage all research park members of AURP to consider serving on the Board. AURP is poised for a bright future as the science and technology sector is undergoing dramatic growth and research parks are key to supporting that growth.  

Five board seats are available this year, including the seats of up to three incumbent members of the Board who may be standing for re-election. With five openings on the board, per AURP By-Laws, a minimum of seven people must be on the ballot.  

The Nominating Committee will decide, using their discretion, which submitted nominations will be selected to appear on the ballot.  The Committee's goal is to have a diverse board, which represents a broad range of different kinds of parks.

The Call for Nominations will be distributed to all research park members in good standing.

The five candidates with the most number of votes will be elected.  Elected candidates will commence their service as of the 2017 International Conference in Huntsville, Alabama on October 9-12.

To nominate, please complete this Nomination Form below, which must be submitted electronically with your photo to Vickie Palmer at Nominations must be received no later than 8:00 am on Friday, June 30, 2017.
