2020-2021 National Student Affiliate Division Officer & Advisor Election Instructions

This year, national ADSA-SAD Officer and Advisor Elections will be modified to accommodate the virtual meeting format. Nominations and elections will be performed digitally between now and the start of the meeting in June. These nomination and election instructions will be sent to Dairy Club Advisors.


  1. Clubs should work with their chapter members to recruit and select viable candidates (both students and advisors) from their chapter.
  2. New for this year: Clubs may nominate up to two officer candidates indicating a “first candidate” and “second candidate” on the nomination form. Important to note: second candidates from each club will only be included on the Ballot in the event the total number of first candidate nominations is less than the number of officer positions.
  3. Before completing a nomination form, clubs should verify that interested officer and advisor candidates have reviewed and are willing and able to fulfill the duties and responsibilities stated on the ADSA-SAD Officer Responsibilities.
  4. National SAD officer positions are one-year terms. National SAD Advisor positions are three-year terms. Local dairy club advisors are highly encouraged to run for national SAD Advisor.
  5. National student and advisor nominees should work with their local club advisor to complete a single nomination form from their club.
  6. Clubs should submit their nomination form by June 1.
  7. Clubs should also submit separately a photo for each officer and advisor candidate to adsa@assochq.org by June 1.
