ADA officer candidate campaign statements posted
August 04, 2014
Candidates seeking ADA-elected offices prepared platform statements and profiles for the ADA News. Each candidate was sent a profile form with the same questions and asked to list no more than five items for professional memberships, volunteer posts/elective offices and main qualifications. Publication of these statements and profiles should not be construed as an endorsement of any candidate by the ADA News or other staff of the ADA or its subsidiaries. These statements and profiles are presented as information for Association members.
The candidates included are those who — as of Aug. 4 — had decided to seek national office through the upcoming Association elections being held concurrently with the Oct. 10-14 House of Delegates meeting in San Antonio.
Candidates are listed by office sought in alphabetical order. Elections for contested races will be held Oct. 13. Candidates in uncontested elections will be declared elected at the first meeting of the House on Oct. 10.
The candidates' profiles and statements are also in the Aug. 4 print edition of the ADA News.
