Seeking 2020-2021 AIAA Houston Executive Council Nomination Chair/Committee Members

Due to competing priorities with the pandemic and needing time to resume to some level of normalcy, the AIAA Houston Section executive council (with AIAA National concurrence) decided to postpone 2020-2021 elections to August.

In the meantime, we are looking for AIAA Houston Section members to participate in the nomination committee as a chair/member. Duties include: soliciting nominations, verifying and tallying up votes, and announcing election results.

If you are interested in being in the nomination committee, please e-mail Irene: chair2019@aiaahouston.org
