As a member organization, NJACAC is governed by members to serve members. The association is seeking willing members to run for election to openings on the Executive Board.
The Nominations and Elections Committee is calling for nominees for candidates that would serve terms beginning May 25, 2021 (Assembly Delegate term begins July 15, 2021), if elected.
The deadline to submit nominations is March 1, 2021.
2021-2022 Open Positions
This spring, the NJACAC Membership will be asked to elect:
- (1) President-Elect (One-year term as part of a three-year cycle)
- (3) Assembly Delegates (Three-year term)
- (2) College Representatives (Two-year term)
- (2) Secondary School Representatives (Two-year term)
Position descriptions are available in sections IV & V of the NJACAC Bylaws, which can be accessed here.
Please thoughtfully consider nominating a colleague or nominating yourself. When reviewing candidates to put forth on the election slate, the Nominations and Elections Committee will focus on individual attributes as well as the collective background of each nominee to bring diversity of expertise, skills, experience and personal qualities to strengthen the association.
All nominees will be required to provide additional application information (sent directly to the nominee) prior to being considered for placement on the election ballot. All candidates for board positions should be NJACAC voting members.
Candidates for elected offices should have demonstrated commitment to the goals and objectives of NJACAC through involvement in its activities, such as service on one or more committees or membership on the Executive Board. Further, candidates must provide the chair of the Nominations and Elections Committee written assurance that s/he will attempt to meet the responsibility of the office and term and will have his/her supervisor provide a written statement attesting to the support of candidacy for the nominated position.
Nominees will have until March 6, 2021 to submit their candidate application information.
Any individual who accepts a nomination MUST ATTEND a candidates’ meeting held in March 2021. This meeting will be held electronically, and more details will be sent to potential candidates in the coming weeks.
Please don’t hesitate to contact Larry Alterman (Immediate Past-President; Chair, Nominations and Elections Committee) if you have any questions about the available positions or the nomination process. Discussions about the open positions would be confidential.
Again, please consider serving on the Executive Board of this great organization or nominating a colleague for service. It is a rewarding opportunity with an outstanding group of professionals.
