Meet Your Network Candidates

Below are the candidates for Chairs-elect for Networks. Not all networks have elections this year. Chairs-elect serve two-years before becoming the chair for two-years. They help organize the vital work the networks do. NAGC members elect the chairs-elect for networks in which they are members.
