The AAW is seeking applications for its annual election of board of directors.

Do you have the willingness to help make AAW a better organization? Do you have the time, energy, and ideas to be a part of guiding AAW’s strategic direction? Are you dedicated to woodturning and the AAW’s educational mission? If so, we encourage you to help move the AAW forward by running for its board. If elected, you’ll have an opportunity work with colleagues to influence and support the AAW and help shape the future of woodturning for generations to come!

The AAW has a nine member volunteer board who are elected to represent the membership and help advance the organization. If you have been a member in good standing for the past three years, you are eligible to apply for candidacy. The AAW nominating committee will review all applications and will select six individuals to appear on the August 2018 ballot. From these six candidates, AAW members will elect three individuals to each serve a three-year term, beginning in January 2020.
