Elections for College officers, Regents to be held in January
The election of College officers and Regents will be held in January.
The election of College officers and Regents will take place by written mail ballot in January 1999. The voting body consists of 38 members of the Board of Regents (31 permanent members and seven temporary members) and 95 members of the Board of Governors, all but 24 of whom are elected by popular vote in their respective jurisdictions. (Of the 24, four represent government services and 20 are Transitional Governors.) Officers and Regents will take office at the conclusion of the Annual Business Meeting at Annual Session on Saturday, April 24, in New Orleans.
College officers and eligible second-term Regents will be voted by a "yes" or "no" vote. In the event that an officer candidate does not receive a majority vote, the Nominations Committee will submit another candidate, and a second ballot will be mailed. In the event that a second-term Regent is not re-elected, a "new" Regent position will be opened and the next new Regent candidate with the greatest number of votes in the appropriate candidate pool will serve.
For a complete list of nominees for the College officers and Regents as well as biographical information, see the November issue of ACP-ASIM Observer or go to ACP-ASIM Online (www.acponline.org/journals/news/nov98/nominees.htm.)
Members are encouraged to review candidate qualifications and share their views with their Governors before Jan. 2.

Regent candidates may be added to the slate by petition.

This must be accompanied by at least 50 signatures of Masters, Fellows and Members, and must be received no later than Jan. 2.
