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.

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 members institution, organization, or company clearly demonstrates that it does not have the financial resources to contribute towards the cost of attendance. Please contact the Past-President, Natalie Bitton, with further questions.
 

Important Note: The Executive Board has decided to delay elections for the Delegate to the NACAC Assembly open positions (currently 2).  NACAC and their affiliates are reviewing the role of the Delegate position. We will be adjusting the Delegate position based upon the Ad Hoc Committee's recommendations and an internal review from our Executive Board. We will hold a special election for the open Delegate positions once the role is formalized. The Delegate election will be completed by May 30, 2023.
