The Association of the U.S. Army’s Board of Directors has nominated one new candidate to serve on the association’s board.

It also nominated five current members for reelection to the board.

The actions were taken when the board, AUSA’s governing body, met Dec. 18.

Retired Chief Warrant Officer 5 Douglas Englen, a former special operations aviator, is nominated to serve as a director on the board. The five board members nominated for additional terms are Thomas Arseneault, president and CEO of BAE Systems; Tim Cahill, executive vice president for missiles and fire control at Lockheed Martin Corporation; Theodore Colbert III, executive vice president of The Boeing Company and president and CEO of Boeing Defense, Space & Security; retired Maj. Gen. Patricia Hickerson, a former adjutant general of the Army; and retired Gen. John Tilelli Jr., a former Army vice chief of staff.

AUSA members who wish to make an additional nomination to the board must submit a petition for candidacy to AUSA national headquarters, as outlined in the association’s bylaws. Additional candidacies must comply with Article VI of the bylaws.

Nominations must be received by April 15. The board will vote during its next meeting in June.

Newly elected officers’ terms will begin July 1.

At its last meeting, the board voted to accept the candidates nominated to serve on board committees.

Retired Col. Michelle Yarborough was approved to serve an additional term, and Francis Finelli, a managing director at The Carlisle Group, was approved to serve a three-year term on the Finance and Audit Committee.
