Elections will be held in August for eight Member-at-Large positions on the USA Wrestling Board of Directors. These positions will be voted upon by the Board of Directors in their August 2010 meeting. A two-year commitment is required as the terms for these positions begin at the conclusion of the Board meeting and proceed for two years, through the 2012 Board of Directors meeting. Board members are responsible for helping set policies and direction for USA Wrestling. The Board meets once per year, usually in August. In addition, Board members may be asked to serve on USA Wrestling standing or ad hoc committees from time to time.
Any member with a current USA Wrestling membership card is eligible to serve on the Board as a Member-at-Large. Any current member may also nominate another USA Wrestling member for these positions. Prospective candidates may nominate themselves or be nominated by someone else. A nomination form is printed on this page. Candidates will be notified by the Steering Committee to determine if they wish to serve (if nominated by someone else) or to confirm receipt of the nomination if they nominate themselves.To become a candidate for these positions:
