To run for president-elect, vice president, secretary-treasurer or alumni representative, a candidate must have previous experience serving in the Mortar Board national leadership as a member of National Council, a section coordinator, a committee chair or a trustee.
Nominations are due on or before October 15. Following the development of a slate, which contains one candidate for each position, candidate materials will be shared with chapters and be available online. Positions are elected on the following schedule at a Special National Conference, which is held virtually late in January:
Odd years - president-elect, secretary-treasurer, alumni representative
Even years - vice president, alumni representative
Each position is for a two-year term. The president-elect succeeds to National President and immediate past president, each a two-year term.
