Three SPOA Board Seats Open for Applications

There are currently three openings on SPOA's boards — two on the Governing Board and one on the Executive Board — and SPOA will be accepting applicants before holding a special election. Apply for one of our meaningful leadership roles in the school photography and yearbook industry!

How the Special Election Works

We will review all applications to ensure and verify active membership. Once verified, all applicable candidates will be posted for 20 days for all member companies for review. In addition, there will be a recorded webinar allowing each candidate 3 minutes to share why they feel they would be a great fit and why they want to serve. In early April the special election will take place allowing each member company to vote for their top two candidates. Those two members receiving the top votes will gain the vacant seats immediately.
