The three candidates for the AASA presidency received stage introductions to those attending AASA’s national conference at the 1st General Session on Thursday afternoon, Feb. 15.

The three candidates are David Law of Minnesota, Tobin Navasio of Montana and Wayne Vickers of Alabama.

Shari Camhi, immediate past president of AASA, introduced each candidate, who then provided their own introductions. Camhi followed with a Q&A session with all three candidates, each of whom answered two questions.

The three aspirants for the AASA presidency are:

  • David Law, superintendent in Minnetonka, Minn., since 2022 and previously superintendent of Anoka-Hennepin Public Schools in Anoka, Minn., from 2014-2022. An AASA member since 2010, he served a year on the AASA Governing Board and currently serves on the Executive Committee.
  • Tobin S. Novasio, superintendent in Hardin, Mont., since 2023 and previously superintendent of Lockwood School District in Billings, Mont., for 11 years. An AASA member since 2012, he spent three years on the AASA Governing Board and now sits on the Executive Committee.
  • L. Wayne Vickers, superintendent in Alabaster, Ala., since 2013 following a previous superintendency in Saraland, Ala., from 2009-2013. An AASA member since 2007, Vickers, a past member of the AASA Governing Board, currently serves on the AASA Executive Committee.

Voting officially launched at 6:30 p.m. ET (3:30 p.m. PT) on Thursday. The top vote getter will serve as president-elect beginning July 1 and assume the AASA presidency the following July.

Eligible members of the association can expect to receive their official ballot by e-mail. If a member previously opted not to vote electronically, they will receive a paper ballot in the mail from AASA.
