Board of Directors

Call for Nominations

Deadline – Friday, September 9, 2022

2023-2024 DMAW Board Candidates

We’ve been catapulted into a new era! Who do you want leading the organization through these changing times? What will the organization need to offer its members to ensure they succeed in the industry?  What will direct response – integrated marketing – look like in 3, 5 or even 10 years?

Are you someone who wants to lead? Who has a vision? Or do you know a professional who fits that description?

Now is the time for those individuals who could potentially help lead this organization into the future to step up. It’s a Call for Nominations and the deadline is Friday, September 9th!

Any active DMAW member is eligible. Nominees will be presented to the board nominating committee to determine the list of final candidates.

Currently, the ten (10) positions to be filled are a result of board members whose terms have expired and must be re-elected. Each elected individual will serve a 2-year term.

The nomination process is easy! Just complete this form: DMAW Board Nominee.

Each nominee must have the support of one current DMWA board member.


The nominating committee will use the following guidelines in determining the final slate:

  • Candidate’s involvement in DMAW’s activities
  • Candidate’s willingness to serve
  • Candidate’s prior participation in volunteer leadership
  • Candidate’s involvement in industry activities

Voting will take place October 17-28, 2022.  To vote, individuals must be DMAW members.

For further information, please read the DMAW Board Member Job Description.
