Directors

USSA Director Elections are just around the corner!
There will be one director position open in each district.


If you or a USSA member you know would like to be a candidate for the upcoming USSA Directors elections, here's a brief overview of your next steps:
1. Submit a letter of intent declaring that you are willing to be a candidate for the 2018 USSA Board of Directors Election. Letters of intent are due in the USSA Office by August 1, 2017. The letter must be faxed, emailed or mailed to the USSA Office, PO Box 121, Holland, Iowa 50642. Letters of intent submitted through mail must be postmarked by the deadline date. Phone calls are not acceptable.
2. Within one week of the deadline, candidates must submit a brief personal bio as well as a photo to the USSA Office. The personal bio should be approximately one-half of an 8 (1/2) x 11 page. The content of candidate bios should discuss the candidate's qualifications, reasons they feel they are a good director candidate and any thoughts/ideas they may have on improving the association and Suffolk breed. Candidates who do not submit a personal bio and photo will only have their name listed on the election ballot.
