The MDA House of Delegates Nominating Committee is seeking candidates for a variety of MDA Board, officer, and leadership positions to take office in 2023.
The House of Delegates elects the members of the MDA Board of Trustees (trustee and officer positions), and ADA delegates and alternate delegates. The 2023 MDA Delegates will receive a slate of vetted candidates from the Nominating Committee and then cast votes at the Annual Session. The Nominating Committee is chaired by the MDA immediate past president, which is made up of 12 members selected from each of the MDA regions. The Committee follows the Nominating Committee Guidelines approved by the House of Delegates in the recruitment and vetting process.
This year’s chair is Dr. Michael Maihofer of St. Clair Shores.
