WASHINGTON, April 5 — The Military Reporters & Editors Association is holding elections next month for its board and president. On behalf of MRE, I invite journalists who cover the military and conflicts to consider joining this prestigious group.
All seats are open: four officers (president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary) and five non-officer board members. My tenure as MRE president will end next month.
If you are interested in running for an officer or a board seat, you must notify us by May 1 at 5 p.m. EDT and send a bio and campaign statement of up to 250 words, plus a headshot, to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will announce the slate of candidates on May 5 on our website and by email. It may include some or all the current officers and board members running for re-election, and it may also include newcomers. Ballots are electronic and sent to active members of MRE by email.
Election results will be announced May 12 and the newly elected board members will start their terms that day.
I am happy to answer any questions you might have about MRE.
