2021 House of Delegates
July 2: House Reports Published
July 16: Deadline for Submitting Candidate Interview Questions to Regional Caucus Leads
July 23: Last Day for Component Interviews with Candidates
Action Needed - Deadline: July 16 - Candidate Interview Questions
Virtual candidate interviews will return in 2021 with a revised format where each candidate will take part in two separate interviews that focus on different topic areas: 1) the association and leadership, and 2) the profession. The development of interview questions will be facilitated via regional caucuses.
Delegations should work with their regional caucus leads to develop questions for each of the two topic areas.
