Each year International ACAC elects members to the Executive Board, in accordance with our association bylaws. The Election process consists of three stages:

 Information & Promotion          Application            Election

The volunteer committee that is responsible for coordinating this process is the Governance & Nominating Committee.  In any given year there will be a different number of Vice President (VP) and Delegate to the NACAC Assembly positions open for election, depending on how many currently serving Board Members terms are expiring.  Board members may also choose to run for a second term.  

International ACAC members are encouraged to explore this page to learn more about the process and consider applying for an Executive Board Position.  Check back regularly for updates during this year’s election season.

International ACAC is committed to maintaining diversity on its Executive Board.
Should financing travel to Executive Board meetings become a barrier to service, on an as-needed basis International ACAC will supplement the contribution. However, this only occurs when the Executive Board member's institution, organization, or company clearly demonstrates that it does not have the financial resources to contribute towards the cost of attendance. Please contact the Executive Director, Theresa Schweser, with further questions.


GOVERNANCE & NOMINATING COMMITTEE 

Get to know the GNC! Occasionally referred to as the GNC, the Governance & Nominating Committee consists of members who have been appointed by the Past President to support the Election Process. They consist of both members who have extensive knowledge of the Association, individuals who bring unique skills to the election process, and members who represent different underrepresented voices in International ACAC.

The Governance & Nominating Committee has three main responsibilities during the Election process:

  1. Educating members about the election process
  2. Helping to identify and encourage members to apply for board positions
  3. Reviewing applications to ensure individuals meet eligibility requirements
