Current Nominating Committee Chairs and members are strongly encouraged to attend this webinar … but anyone interested in serving in this vital role in the future is invited!


  1. State why cultivating a diverse leadership pipeline is important to AACP and how well we are currently achieving our ideals.
  2. Implement a process for identifying and attracting a large pool of candidates for elected leadership in AACP SIGs, Sections, and Councils.
  3. Put together a slate of qualified candidates for elected offices that enhances the diversity of AACP’s leadership pipeline.
