The American Academy of Health Physics (AAHP) Nominating Committee is looking for candidates to run for Academy Office on the 2024 ballot.

Successful candidates will take office on January 1, 2025. We need nominees for the offices of President- Elect, Secretary, and Director. Nominees must be:

  • Current Plenary members of the Academy (either active or emeritus)
  • Not serving an appointment to either the Part I or Part II Exam Panels or as a member of the ABHP at the time that they take office.

The President-Elect serves one year, followed by year as President, and third year as Past-President. The President-Elect is responsible for filling positions on the Academy Committees, attending the meetings of the ABHP, and as President, presiding over the meetings of the Academy. The Past-President is responsible for organizing a special session at the HPS annual meeting. The Executive Committee meets twice per year at the HPS Annual meeting and at an earlier HPS meeting, if held.

The Secretary serves a term of two years, followed by one year as Past-Secretary. The Secretary is responsible for recording the minutes of the Academy Executive Committee and Business meetings and running the election for officers.

The Directors serve terms of three years. The Directors attend the meetings of the Academy Executive Committee and perform duties as requested by the President.
