Each year, nominations for the ACCC 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. Ballots are then sent to all (voting) Delegate Representatives for voting. The election results are presented at the Annual Meeting during the House of Delegates.
In order to be elected to the ACCC Board of Trustees, an individual must be formally affiliated with a Cancer Program Member or a Chapter Member. All terms of office begin at the conclusion of the Annual Meeting at which the Trustee is elected.
