The CPOA and CGEA are looking for dedicated Association members to serve on the National CPOA and CGEA Board for a three-year term from 2024-2027. Our Association needs new ideas & people willing to work to make those ideas a reality.
Per the CPOA Operations Manual and the CGEA Procedures Manual, the nominating period for all positions will open on 1 October & close on 23 November 2023 (the day before Thanksgiving), and all nominations must be received at the National Office by that date. Nominations should contain a statement citing your reasons for seeking National office, and a brief bio is also helpful in providing your fellow Association members with a little info about your background. Job descriptions for the Officer and regional Advisor positions can be found in Section II of the CPOA Operations Manual or the CGEA Procedures Manual.
Nominations should be sent to the National Office via one of the following ways:
Email: [email protected]
Fax: (703) 941-0397
Regular Mail to:
Attn: 2024 Elections
CPOA/CGEA National Office
5520-G Hempstead Way
Springfield, VA 22151
The Executive Director will provide verbal or written confirmation to all members submitting nominations to verify that their nomination has been accepted. If you do not receive confirmation, please call the National Office at (703) 941-0395 to verify receipt of your nomination. The voting period is 1 January – 14 March 2024, (either on-line or via paper ballot) and all members are encouraged to vote. Instructions for both voting methods will be available in the January 2024 edition of The Chief.
The Installation of Officers will be conducted next August during the CPOA’s 55th Convention onboard M/V Ovation of the Seas.
If you want to help our Association move forward, please consider submitting your nomination for National Office or encourage a fellow member to run. Strong leadership on the Board will help to ensure the continued success of CPOA and CGEA.
