NCTM members are currently in the process of electing the next president as well as four new board members to the NCTM Board of Directors. The NCTM Board sets the direction, establishes policy, and oversees the activities of the Council. The successful candidate for president will serve one year as president-elect (2013–2014), working closely with President Linda M. Gojak before assuming the full duties of president for a two-year term beginning in the spring of 2014. Board Directors serve three-year terms. All terms begin at the conclusion of the NCTM 2013 Annual Meeting and Exposition in April.
Individual NCTM members will be asked to vote for one president-elect and four candidates as follows: one candidate who is a elementary school teacher, one candidate from the Canadian Region, and two candidates at-large. The election will be conducted exclusively online this year. If your individual membership is current as of August 10, 2012, you will be eligible to vote in this year’s election, which begins in September 2012. Find out more.
