In its 2015 election, the PSA will elect two members of its Governing Board, each of whom will serve a four-year term beginning January 1, 2016, and three members of its Nominating Committee, each to serve a two-year term beginning January 1, 2016.

Nominations should be submitted by e-mail to Jessica Pfeifer at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations for either office from any fifteen Full members of the PSA will appear on the ballot of the 2015 PSA Election provided they are received by September 15, 2015.
