General Call for Candidates

Dear American Primrose Society members,

This is your society. Please consider taking an active role in steering it where you think it should go. Have you considered serving on the society’s board of directors?  Or maybe you know another APS member that you think would be effective as a board member.  Board elections happen in the late winter/early spring but right now is the time to find the candidates for the spring of 2022.  Five positions will be up for election in Spring of 2022:  President, Treasurer, and three Director seats.  Any member in good standing is eligible to hold any office.

Board members have the opportunity to make decisions about the direction of the Society.  Serving on the Board provides invaluable experience in running a nonprofit organization.  It’s also a good opportunity for networking.  APS is an international group of primula enthusiasts with members across North American, the UK, Europe, New Zealand, and Japan.  And most importantly, the Board keeps the APS running.

The Society is guided by a board consisting of four officers (President, Vice-president, Secretary, and Treasurer) and six Directors.  The four officers are elected every two years, while the directors serve for three years.   There are regularly four scheduled meetings of the board each year.  Because Board members are located across North America, these meetings are held online.

All Board members are volunteers and receive no payment for services.  You can see a description of the duties of the officers and the directors when you’re logged into the APS website with your username and password, clicking HERE.  Or feel free to email .

The APS always benefits from new ideas and new perspectives that new Board members bring.  So, I encourage you to read the description of the various positions and think about the possibility of joining the Board.  Please contact if you have questions, think you would like to discuss standing for election to any open position in the spring election, or if you would like to nominate another member.
