NAIBA Board of Directors

VOTE for the 2022 Slate of Officers and Directors (deadline August 5, 2022)

In accordance with NAIBA bylaws, voting members (independent brick & mortar businesses in the New Atlantic Region actively engaged in the retail sale of books) are entitled to one vote in the NAIBA election process. The nominating committee proposes a slate of potential board members in the fall.

If you or someone you know would like to serve on the NAIBA board, please write to with your nomination. Nominations must be in by June 30 of each year to be eligible for the summer election. New board members are installed at the Fall Conference each year.
