Officer Nominations now being accepted

Nominations are now being accepted for the President-elect, Treasurer, and four members of the Board of Directors.   This is your opportunity to help AACIS identify individuals who will guide the organization for the next two years.

The President-elect takes office at the 2008 annual conference and serves as the program chair for the 2009 conference. This individual then holds the office of AACIS president for 2010, and chairs the nomination election process in 2011. Serving in this position is a three-year commitment. For this position only, individuals nominated must be (or have been) an AACIS officer, Board member, or chair of a standing committee.

The Treasurer takes office at the 2008 conference and serves a two-year term. The person in this position receives and handles all monies on behalf of the organization. The treasurer will work with the Membership Committee chair to monitor the membership list of the organization. The treasurer will serve a two-year term.

 In 2008, AACIS will elect four members of the Board of Directors. These individuals take office at the 2009 conference and serve a two-year term. The Board is the primary advisory and governing body of AACIS. The responsibilities of the board include advising the officers of the organization, establishing committees and advisory groups as needed, soliciting bids and choosing the site of annual conferences, and establishing policies and procedures to ensure the effective functioning of the organization.

(Current Board members whose terms expire at the end of 2008 may be nominated for another term, if they have not served two consecutive terms.)

 All individuals nominated for these positions must be active members (dues paid) at the time of their nomination and, if elected, for the years of their service.

Members may self-nominate.

If you wish to nominate someone, please verify that the individual is willing and able to accept the nomination.

Nominations will be accepted through Monday, June 2, 2008. Please e-mail the nominations to: Lisa Bourlier at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln,

Be sure to include the name and e-mail address of the nominee and the office for which he/she is being nominated.
