Chapter Elections
US Chapter elections for regions hosting 2022 and 2023 Regional DoPs were held in January 2021. Following the suspension of the “Regional Day of Percussion” programming, these chapters remained on three year cycles based on the following:

  • 2022 Regional DoP hosts held elections immediately following the events, and will be up for election again in 2025.
  • Those that were supposed to host in 2023 will have elections in the Spring of 2023 to start a full three-year cycle. All current officers will be eligible to run for two full terms.
  • Chapter elections for regions that were supposed to host 2024 programs were held in Spring 2021, and will be up for election again in Spring 2024.

International chapters should hold elections every three years.
