The 2024 Executive Board Application is now closed.

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

 

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