Each year, ACCC holds an annual election — on even-numbered years to elect new members to the Board of Trustees; on odd-numbered years to elect new members to the Nominating Committee.

Board of Trustee nominations are open now.

Board of Trustees

Nominations for the Board of Trustees are solicited from the membership by issuing a Call for Nominations and placing notices in official ACCC communications. Nominees are reviewed by ACCC’s Nominating Committee and candidates selected to be placed on the ballot.

Board Member Duties

Board of Trustee member duties include reviewing the ACCC budget at the fall conference; approving all ACCC participation in jointly sponsored meetings and symposia; reviewing all projects and grants submitted in the name of the Association; reviewing the annual audit and engaging an auditor annually; approving new membership applications; and approving formation of Chapter Members.

Nominating Committee

The Nominating Committee consists of five (5) members. Candidates are nominated by the Board of Trustees to be placed on the ballot.

Nominating Committee Duties

The Nominating Committee duties include soliciting the membership for nominees; reviewing their qualifications and selecting the nominees to be placed on the ballot on even-numbered years. The committee prepares the ballot for all elected offices of the Association and, whenever possible, selects at least two (2) nominees for each open Board of Trustee position. During odd-numbered years, the committee appoints five (5) members to the Board. Members are nominated by the Board to serve on the Nominating Committee and elected during the ACCC annual elections.

In order to be elected to the ACCC Board of Trustees or Nominating Committee, individuals must be formally affiliated with a Cancer Program Member or a Chapter Member. In addition, all Board and Nominating Committee members must adhere to the principles detailed in ACCC’s Standards of Conduct and the Antitrust Policy and Guide.
