Organizational Structure

The Nominating Committee reports directly to the ANSI Board of Directors.

To assist ANSI’s members in the annual nomination process, the ANSI Board has created guidelines designed to identify target sectors that may currently be underrepresented within the Federation, ensure balance and diversity within the membership, enhance ANSI’s relationships and networks, and highlight individual personal attributes.

 Review the latest guidelines.

Meeting Calendar

The ANSI Nominating Committee typically meets as necessary, typically in the third and fourth quarters of each year.
