Below are links to the list of OAN voting member agencies according to region as well as nomination forms for the seats up for election this year. It’s always nice to know who is in your region when discussing potential board nominations, as each regional caucus will have the responsibility to endorse candidates for election at the AGM. There is an At Large Designated seat vacant this year, so there is potential for all regional caucuses to put a PHA name forth from their region. The “Designated” seats are open to those people who are living with HIV and are comfortable disclosing their status publicly. Non-Designated seats are open to anyone, regardless of HIV status. Please take a moment to review the list below and consider plans to nominate qualified candidates or run yourself for election to the board. The seats up for election this year are:
  • Eastern Non-Designated
  • Northern Non-Designated
  • At Large Designated

Here are some ways that you can help populate our board vacancies:

  1. Look to other agencies in your region which may have gone through this process before for advice and potential help identifying qualified candidates.
  2. Post OAN election details in your agency newsletters,  and on websites and bulletin boards.
  3. Consult an OAN board member for assistance in completing any documents and to review election guidelines and by laws.
Each voting member belongs to a regional caucus and has the opportunity to have input and endorse candidates for election to the board.  Regular members also have the right to send up to two delegates to the AGM; if two are sent, one must be a PHA.
