Dear AHG Members,


We are excited to announce that the Election Committee will begin accepting nominations for the upcoming Board of Directors election, commencing on May 22nd, 2024. This election, scheduled for August 2024, marks a significant opportunity for you, our valued members, to shape the future direction of our organization. Nominations will remain open until July 14th, inviting passionate individuals committed to advancing the mission of the AHG.


As stewards of our organization's vision outlined in our by-laws, the Board of Directors plays a pivotal role in ensuring the AHG's financial stability and the realization of our collective objectives. Comprising 10-12 elected representatives, the Board's responsibilities extend to advocating for members' interests and overseeing the implementation of strategic initiatives. Furthermore, our dynamic working council, consisting of dedicated members, contributes essential leadership across diverse committees and projects.


In this forthcoming election, seats are available for both Registered Herbalists and General Members, including those enrolled as Student Members. Board members will serve a term of two years, commencing on January 1, 2025, and concluding on December 31, 2026.


As part of our ongoing commitment to inclusivity and diversity, we strongly encourage individuals from underrepresented communities to contemplate candidacy for the Board. We believe that fostering a leadership team reflective of the rich tapestry of herbalists within our community enhances our collective strength and perspective.


Every member in good standing possesses the privilege to nominate another member deserving of consideration as a candidate. It's important to note that all nominees must receive a minimum of two nominations to be considered. Please submit your nomination at this link. Your participation in this process is vital to ensuring a diverse and representative leadership for our community.
