International ACAC Executive Board Applications Now Open!


International ACAC Executive Board Applications Now Open!  

It’s the most wonderful time of the year….

On behalf of the Governance and Nominating Committee (GNC), we are very happy to inform the membership that applications for the International ACAC Executive Board are now open! There are many ways to get involved in International ACAC (you can find them here), and we are grateful to all of our members who give their time to the organization. If you are seeking deeper involvement in International ACAC, more professional development, and a dynamic and exciting experience, Executive Board service may be for you!

Detailed information about the election process and available positions for this year’s election is available on our website, and we encourage all members considering Board service to review the website carefully. This year we will be electing four VPs, two delegates, and one President-Elect. International ACAC Bylaws Article VII, section 3(b) states: Whenever possible, the Nominating and Governance Committee (GNC) shall make every effort to provide geographic and institutional balance within the Executive Board that roughly parallels the geographic and institutional diversity of International ACAC’s voting membership. In an effort to align with this goal, for this year’s election, the International ACAC Executive Board has requested that one delegate position be reserved for a non-US university member, and thus this will be a priority for one of the two open delegate positions.

Serving on the International ACAC Executive Board is an incredibly rewarding experience, and you can hear more about that in our webinar that was recorded two weeks ago. As our participants shared, Board service is very exciting and interesting, and it leads to fantastic professional development and networking opportunities.  We also want to make sure our members know that International ACAC is committed to maintaining diversity - geographic and socioeconomic – without finances being a deterrent from Executive Board service. International ACAC will supplement the institutional contribution, when the institution clearly demonstrates that it does not have the financial resources to contribute towards the cost of attendance. We never want finances to be a deterrent for considering Board service.

It is also important to note that this year, applications for Committee and Board service are following the same application timeline (Open December 1st and closing January 15th). If you would like to be considered for a Committee if you do not get elected to the Executive Board, please make sure to complete two separate applications.

As a member-driven organization, we rely on members, just like you, to come forward for Board service to move our organization forward and do all we can to meet the needs of our members. As International ACAC continues to grow and be a leader in international higher education, it’s a wonderful time to get involved and be a part of it all! Please do consider running for the Executive Board, and if you have any questions at all, feel free to reach out directly to anyone on the GNC or to me directly ([email protected]).

Wishing everyone a happy holiday season, and hoping for many applications (completed, including references) by January 15th!

Johanna Fishbein

Immediate Past-President, International ACAC
