I don't think it's AUUG.  I've been through the rules several times.

If you're thinking in general, I'd suggest getting in contact with
your state associations office.  They probably have a recommendations.

This certainly doesn't apply to AUUG, where for years the question has
been to find sufficient people to fill the spaces.

Talking about that, what's the current legal status of AUUG?  My
understanding is that there was no election, the terms of office of
the previous board has expired, and thus there is no board.  Can
anybody clarify?
