How Do I Find the Qualifications:

If you want to find out the minimum qualifications for any of the offices that are open for elections, go to the National Policy and Procedure Manual, section 1, and read the duties and qualifications for the office(s) you are interested in.

AVVA national elections are held at the national conventions, and voting is executed by the registered delegates from our states, chapters, and at-large representatives. All delegates must be legally elected, or duly appointed as an alternate, and must be registered both for the convention (one form) and as an AVVA delegate (second form). These forms and other details can be found on the convention page.

In writing your biography for candidacy,remember that this is not a letter of intent. This is a statement that you are running for a certain office, and should contain an essay type listing of your qualifications and the reasons you feel you would be good for the job. Keep in mind that it will be published both on this website, and in the Convention Delegate Information Books handed out at the convention.  Try to give all needed information, while attempting to remain within two typed pages. (this is not a requirement, but rather a suggestion to keep your reader interested.)

The biographies and candidate information for anyone running for national offices will be posted on this page as they come in. Keep watch on this and the convention web page for further details.
