The composition of the AB over the years under NASPA is available at this website.
This year’s election will chose members in:
Playing SCRABBLE has been a unique way for a player to grow in self belief and confidence. As a Board member I will seek to support, strengthen and enable each member of NASPA and those who wish to become members, in growing in both their playing skills and their own personal skills and development. Working with other Board members, I will engage in actively promoting SCRABBLE in all its formats within the United States, and beyond the borders as appropriate.
I see the growing importance of School SCRABBLE tournaments and development of the youth as a solid foundation for the growth of SCRABBLE worldwide.
Voting will take place from June 1–30 inclusive, Eastern Time. Votes will be accepted by paper or electronically. Any current NASPA member can vote for (at most) one candidate for each of the four contested seats, regardless of the region of residency.
Paper votes may be sent to NASPA by postal mail and must arrive during the voting period to be accepted. Paper votes are not anonymous and must identify the voter and their vote.
Electronic votes should be made through the Member Services link at the NASPA website. Electronic votes will be anonymous, except inasmuch as a skilled person with access to the NASPA server could eventually reconstruct voting information.
The winner of each election will be determined by plurality. If an election ends in a tie, a lottery or coin toss will be used to break the tie.
Winners will be announced at the beginning of July, as soon as the votes are tabulated.
Any disputes about the elections process will be decided by the AB, excluding those members running for reelection.
Electoral candidates must meet all of the following criteria:
Nominations will take place from May 1–31 inclusive, Eastern Time.
To nominate yourself, send your name and platform statement to email@example.com.
To nominate someone else, send the candidate's name to firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominated candidates will be contacted and asked if they agree to run. If so, they will be asked to send their platform statements.
A platform statement is a brief statement that describes a candidate's qualifications, background, platform, and any other information that might be of use to voters, for posting to this webpage.
You can view the platform statements of previous candidates here.
