NAKHE Elections Open Friday, September 15 at 12 am EST

This year NAKHE membership will elect a president and a vice president. Because there is only one candidate for each office, the executive committee requests that you cast a "vote of confirmation" for Dr. Tara Tietjen-Smith, the nominee for President and Dr. Timothy Baghurst, the nominee for Vice President.

The election will run Friday, September 1 through Sunday, October 15. An email with a link will be emailed to all current NAKHE members directly from a secure online voting software called “electionbuddy”. electionbuddy uses SSL 256 bit encryption — the same as major banks. All votes are confidential and cannot be seen by others. So, please be on the lookout for an email from electionbuddy Elections [elections@electionbuddy.com] and cast your vote! Your opinion matters!

Meet Dr. Tara Tietjen-Smith, Nominee for President

Meet Dr. Timothy Baghurst, Nominee for Vice President
