|FPTA Nominations & Elections Information|
Our elected leaders help guide the FPTA toward the goals of our members and provide a voice to APTA. Your participation and commitment are vital to the organization and we are glad you're interested! We know you have questions, and this is the place to find the answers.
Let’s get started
The Nominations Committee is responsible creating a slate of eligible candidates to present to the FPTA membership for election and for overseeing the conduct of campaigns. Their responsibilities are further outlined in the FPTA Nominating Committee Manual.
Chair: Leiselle Pilgrim (SE District) 2017
Tom Fischer (EC District) 2018
Healther Moran (NO District) 2019
The process starts with nominations for the various leadership positions that are available. These positions are governed by the FPTA Bylaws and differ according to whether it’s an odd- or even-number year. More information can be found in the FPTA Policies & Procedures Manual.
You can nominate yourself or someone else by visiting the FPTA Nomination page.
Petitions & Write-Ins
If you want to run for an FPTA leadership position but were not slated by the nominating committee, you can get on the ballot either through a nomination by petition or as a write-in candidate.
Congratulations! If you have been nominated by slate or petition, you may now start campaigning for an FPTA leadership position. There are guidelines governing appropriate campaign strategies and you will be asked to sign a Consent to Serve form.
It's important to comply with the Guidelines for Appropriate Campaigning Strategies to avoid any perception of impropriety. If you have questions, ask the Nominating Committee by writing to committee chair Leiselle Pilgrim
