Nominations & Elections

ASHG members in good standing are encouraged to participate in the life of the Society and help steer its future. The Society encourages members to nominate leaders to the ballot and vote in elections, which take place each summer for the following year.

Committees develop action plans and participate in the implementation of a variety of Society programs, which reflect ASHG’s broad directions and enable members to deliver on its mission.

ASHG’s 2021 Board of Directors elections are now open. Current members can vote for the 2021 President-Elect, Directors, Early-Career Director, and Trainee Director. ASHG is working with vendor partner Survey & Ballot Systems (SBS) to administer this year’s election. You can find your personalized link to vote in your email from on June 18, 2020.

Elections close Wednesday, July 22, 2020, so cast your vote today!
