Call for Presidential and Treasurer NominationsThe AACP Nominations Committee calls for nominations of candidates for the office of President-Elect and Treasurer:
The presidential term of service is three years (including service as the 2016-2017 President-Elect, 2017-2018 President and 2018-2019 Immediate Past President), followed by five years on the Argus Commission and includes appointment to the AACP Board of Directors and Executive Committee.

This year, we seek nominees for President-elect from active AACP members who do not hold the title of dean, associate dean, assistant dean or equivalent administrative title.
The treasurer term of service is also three years and includes serving on the Board of Directors from 2016–2019. The Treasurer also serves as chair of the Finance and Investment Committees.
Please confirm a candidate’s willingness to serve prior to submitting a name to the committee. Self-nominations are accepted. Requests for additional information can be directed to Immediate Past President Peggy Piascik, committee chair, at email@example.com.
