CALL FOR NOMINATIONS - SAPA Leadership Positions

Posted 9 days ago in Elections

Greetings SAPA Members

As the year rapidly progresses, It is time to start looking for candidates for the Society of Army PAs Board of Directors. These are the people who will continue to lead the organization in the next year.  

There have been a lot of changes to SAPA in order to make this a better organization.  We have moved our yearly conference from Fayetteville NC to San Antonio, TX, we are developing an online marketplace, and we have begun CMEs on demand. 

To go with this, we need strong and dedicated leadership. We have had that in our current President, Scott Festa, our President-Elect, Tim Jayne, and our Immediate Past President, Sharon Rosser. 

It is now time for self-nominations for the 2023-2024 elections. We need candidates for President-Elect, Secretary, Treasurer, Directors for Active Duty, Reserve Component, National Guard, Retired, Federal Services Component, and Civilian Component. 

Please consider self-nomination and general nominations.  This is for all even if you have served on the board in the past, please join us in the future. Please put some of your knowledge and experience back into the organization.

Scott Festa

SAPA President
