Every two years, NAADAC members have the opportunity to select a Regional Vice-President who will represent their state affiliate on the NAADAC Executive Committee, with four of NAADAC’s eight regional positions being up for election each year.
This year, the Mid-Central, North Central, Southeast, and Southwest Regional Vice President positions came up for election. NAADAC only received one nomination for each of the open Regional Vice President positions. Accordingly, each of the nominated individuals will take office as the Regional Vice President of his or her respective region without an election.
The following individuals will begin their 2019-2021 terms in their respective Executive Committee positions on October 4, 2019, immediately after the NAADAC 2019 Annual Conference in Orlando, FL:
