How was the slate selected? Chapter members interested in volunteering for the 2022 Board were asked to complete an interest form. Then, in accordance with PRSA Hoosier Chapter bylaws, a nominating committee convened in September to review completed interest forms and slate the 2022 Board of Directors. Nomination committee participants were selected per our Chapter’s governance guidelines.  

The election of the 2022 board will take place at the Nov. 10 luncheon (which serves as the chapter’s annual meeting) by a majority vote of the members in good standing who are present and voting or voting by proxy. 

To vote by proxy, fill out this form with your vote, and send it to Allyson Johnson, APR at allysonjohnson4435@gmail.com no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 8.
