NAMI is pleased to announce the two candidates running for the Executive Directors' Council (EDC)-elected seat on the 2024-2025 NAMI Board of Directors! One candidate will be elected to serve for the standard three-year board term. 

PLEASE NOTE: This election is running in parallel to the general election to fill five open seats on the NAMI Board of Directors. While it has the same deadlines and key dates, only Executive Directors will be voting to elect one of the two candidates to fill this seat.

Both nominees are NAMI members as well as the current Executive Director at a NAMI Affiliate or NAMI State Organization. Nominations were made and seconded by fellow EDC members by the nomination deadline, which is 60 days prior to NAMI's Annual Meeting. 

In addition to their statements of candidacy and their NAMI affiliations, each candidate profile includes the letter of nomination from the Executive Director recommending them for service to the NAMI Board and a summary of statements the nominator provided in support of their candidacy. Each candidate profile also includes a recorded speech from the candidate.  

The candidates are listed in the order that the written nomination was received by NAMI:
