What are USBG Chapter Board elections?
Chapter Board elections invite USBG members to select qualified members to serve on their local leadership team as Directors. Our newly adopted chapter governance model requires one-third of Chapter Board seats go up for election every year. The rotation of leadership creates a more balanced Board made up of a combination of new, renewing, and experienced leaders.
→ 29 Chapters will be voting for their chapter leaders in the current election
→ Chapters converted to the new governance model will be voting to elect Directors
Communities that have not completed the new requirements to be a chapter will be voting to recommend Community Council leadership. Community Councils will then be approved and appointed by the National Board of Directors.
Chapters Electing Directors & Council Leaders:
Chapters electing Directors are: Boston, Central Jersey, Charleston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Hawaii, Houston, Indianapolis, Kentucky, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York, Oregon, Palm Beach, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Silicon Valley, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, and Tucson.
