The Region 3 Nominating Committee is now accepting applications from Region 3 members who are interested in the Secretary position. The Secretary position is a three year commitment. After year one (2017-2018), the Secretary will serve as Chair-elect for 2018-2019, and then Chair of Region 3 for 2019-2020. It will be the Chair’s responsibility to plan and implement a productive and informative Region 3 Fall Conference.
Based on the recommendation in the Regional Council Handbook (2017) and past practices of Region 3, "the office of Chair should alternate between Associate Degree schools and Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree schools;" therefore, the nominee for 2017 Secretary position should be from a 2-year institution. However, if there are no volunteers, it can be filled by a 4-year school. According to the ACBSP bylaws, the terms of office begin July 1 and end June 30.
Candidates will be presented by the Nominating Committee during the annual regional meeting on Saturday, June 24th in Anaheim, CA (during ACBSP Conference 2017). Nominations will not be accepted from the floor. Each candidate will be given 3-minutes to introduce him/herself and make brief comments regarding qualifications and desire to serve.
The Region has adopted a policy of vetting all candidates. It’s required that you have the full support of your institution to serve as a Region 3 Officer. An Officer Interest Questionnaire must be completed by anyone who is interested in serving as a Region 3 Officer. You may self-nominate or you may nominate someone. If you nominate someone, please ensure the individual has the support of his/her institution. If you are interested, please complete the form and email it to Dr. Aliquippa Allen (firstname.lastname@example.org) by June 15, so the Nominating Committee will have adequate time to vet each candidate.
Thank you in advance for your interest in serving as a Region 3 Officer.
