Nominees must complete and submit the Board Application by Sunday, December 10th before they can become candidates for election, which will take place immediately afterwards.

Each Board member position requires a two-year term commitment, from December 2017 to December 2019. Our Board meets once a month. Applications are accepted from all current AWIS-SD members in good standing and who have been members of the organization for at least one year.
