National Officer Election Information

Running for National Office is an opportunity to gain an unparalleled leadership experience that will grow you personally and professionally regardless of the outcome.

The national election process is an experience that allows you to self-reflect on your leadership journey, create lasting friendships with members, and learn skills for life. This opportunity gave me a new perspective on the organization and challenged me to leave a lasting legacy for over 200,000 members. I am prepared for any future opportunity because of the incREDible skills I gained through this process.

Mary Katherine Gunn, 2022-2023 National President
