The FSTA is accepting nominations to its Board of Directors, with elections coming up later this month. Five of the 15 board spots are up for election, with each new board member being seated for a three-year term (expiring in Spring 2016).

Other details:
  • Nominations are due by 5 p.m. CT on Friday, Feb. 8.
  • If you’re interested in joining the board, please submit your name along with a short paragraph (no more than 150 words) describing your qualifications to Association Director Megan Van Petten at
  • Every FSTA member in good standing is eligible to run for a board seat.
  • The FSTA is a non-profit organization and, accordingly, board positions are unpaid. Ideal candidates are individuals that are motivated to propel the industry, achieve industry goals and address industry and organizational needs. This is a working board and there is an expectation that all members will participate meaningfully. We’re not looking for people that just want to add a line to their resume. There is serious work involved.
  • All FSTA Board members participate in at least one committee (see the list here) and newly elected board members will also work on our Conference Committee for their first year on the board.
Election schedule:
  • Nominations are due by 5 p.m. CT on Feb. 8

  • New board members will be announced by March 1
