AACP Board member elections will be taking place January 15th through February 15th

We will be electing 5 at large board members and 3 area representatives from:

Area I – New England, Area IV – Midwest, Area V – Southeast . Terms of office will run for 4 years, beginning May 2018

Only current AACP members are permitted to vote.

Only members who currently reside in Areas I, IV and V are permitted to vote for vacant positions in their respective regions. Please see the following list of regions covered by current area divisions.

All members are permitted to vote for vacant at large positions.

Information about serving on the board:

The mission of the Board is to oversee and guide all aspects of the AACP organization. All board members are expected to devote a substantial portion of time to AACP projects and working groups, both at board meetings and in the intervening periods. They are expected to attend at least an average of two out of three in-person annual board meetings: one in the fall, held in conjunction with the IPS, one in the spring in conjunction with the APA annual meeting, and one mid-year retreat, usually in the winter. It is important to recognize that the AACP only reimburses part of the expenses of these trips (traditionally up to $500/meeting), so board members are responsible for the remaining costs.

Area representatives on the board, in addition to general board activities, serve as points of contact for membership outreach in their geographic membership area.
