Board of Directors Nominations & Elections

Each year ACFAS voting members elect two or more Fellows to serve on the College’s Board of Directors. A call for nominations is issued in late summer and a seven-member Nominating Committee conducts a thorough written application and telephone interview process, and then recommends candidates to the membership, pursuant to the Bylaws. Electronic voting is started no less than 75 days prior to the Annual Scientific Conference.

After careful review and consideration of applicants to serve on the ACFAS Board of Directors, the Nominating Committee recommends these four Fellows for two positions in the upcoming electronic election. Click on each name to see the candidate's profile and position statement.

Voting for the 2018 Board of Directors will occur January 5 to January 22, 2018 by electronic ballot. Eligible voting members will receive an email with a unique link to the election website. After logging in, members will first see the candidate biographies and position statements, followed by the actual ballot. Eligible voters without a valid email address will receive instructions on how to log onto the election website and vote by US mail. There will not be paper ballots. The two three-year terms will be filled by election. The ballot appearance is prescribed in the bylaws. Eligible voters may cast up to two votes on their ballot. Regular member classes eligible to vote are: Fellows, Associates, Emeritus (formerly Senior) and Life Members.
