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 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. The volunteer committee that is responsible for coordinating this process is the Governance & Nominating Committee.
