As Zone Director, your representation on the Board not only gives a voice to different geographical areas but also assists the Association in serving the unique needs of the zones. Candidates must be a member of the zone they are declaring candidacy for. Zone Directors may serve two consecutive, two-year terms (total of four years).
Other Board Positions

Why Serve on the OSFMA Board?
The Board directs how the Association serves members, both school and business. In addition to having a positive impact on the work of the association, board members also expand their own knowledge base which increases their capacity and potential job growth.
Process & Eligibility
When officer positions are open, an election is conducted during the Annual Business Meeting at the Annual Conference. Zone Directors are elected by members in their zone during the zone meeting held at the Annual Conference. Candidates must be a current OSFMA member.
Role & Commitment
As a member of the OSFMA Board, you'll need to be available to attend all board meetings (monthly or bi-monthly depending on time of year and virtually).
