The Nominations Recruitment Committee reviews all initial nominations for the Member-at-Large (MAL) and President-Elect (PE) positions to ensure each candidate meets the basic eligibility criteria (an Academy member in good standing with no outstanding ethical violations). All eligible candidates receive an invitation to complete the full application for the respective position. A completed application and submission of references is required for a candidate to continue in the process and be considered for the nominations slate.
Candidates for selection to the nomination slate for MAL or PE must possess the necessary competencies and experience to fulfill the responsibilities of the respective position. A rubric for each position assists in the assessment of a candidate’s leadership experience, organizational knowledge, and factors demonstrating diversity and breadth of experiential backgrounds.
The Nominations Committee has the charge to submit a slate of eligible candidates to the Academy Board of Directors. In preparing the final slate, the nominations committee considers the candidates’ scores and references, other current service positions, conflict of interest disclosures, as well as the multiplicity of practice settings represented by the candidate pool and with respect to the current board. The nominations committee identifies at least two candidates for each vacant position to include on the nominations slate.
