As we see the start of 2017, the AVVA National Elections Committee announces that the 2017 election cycle is open, and is accepting candidate and delegate / alternate delegate registrations for the AVVA 2017 National Convention.

This year's convention is to be held August 8 - 12, 2017 in New Orleans, Louisiana!

Elections are to be held on Friday, August 11, 2017

All offices are open for candidacy:

1. President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer
2. Regional Directors (regions 1 - 9)
3. Deputy Regional Directors (regions 1 - 9)


This is the first year that deputy regional directors will be elected in the same manner as the regional directors, rather than being appointed. This is important to understand so that your region is properly represented. You will find the Candidate Registration Form will contain spaces for information for this office, so that you may register as a candidate in your area. Reminders will be sent periodically.


The deadline for receipt of Candidate Registration is closed.


At this time we would like to refer you to Section 1 and Section 5 of the
Policy and Procedure Manual:
Section 1 contains all of the responsibilities and qualification that are needed for the
respective offices.
P&P Section 1

Section 5 contains candidate and delegate information, voting structure and the
National Elections details.
P&P Section 5

This will be your official Elections Information Source.
Candidate biographies will be added here as we receive them.

Kaye Gardner

Walkersville, MD   21793

Our delegate form has been modified to include space for registering alternate delegates.

We urge you to register your alternate delegates at this time – even if you plan
on attending the convention.  Life happens to all of us.



This page will be updated as we progress with the election cycle.
Please mark it and check back regularly.

As regional directors, state representatives, state presidents, chapter representatives
or chapter presidents receive election or delegate information, they are required to forward the information to their members so everyone can be informed as to what is taking place at
that time.
This is so important!

The National Election Committee thanks you for your interest in our process of having
the privilege to have your voice heard in the selection of AVVA leadership.
Our membership is so very important in
