How the election of College leaders works

The election of College Officers and Regents will take place by written mail ballot in January, 2001. The voting body consists of 36 (31 permanent and 5 temporary) members of the Board of Regents and 81 members of the Board of Governors, who are elected by popular vote in their respective jurisdictions. (Three represent government services.) Officers and Regents will take office at the conclusion of the Annual Business Meeting on Saturday, March 31, 2001, in Atlanta.

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 would be mailed. In the event that a second-term Regent candidate is not re-elected, a "new" Regent position would be opened and the next new Regent candidate with the greatest number of votes in the appropriate candidate pool would serve.

Regent candidates may be added to the slate by petition. This requires the submission of biographical information, completed by the candidate, with a statement (maximum 150 words) indicating his or her qualifications for service. This must be accompanied by at least 50 signatures of Masters, Fellows and Members and must be received by the Executive Vice President/Chief Executive Officer no later than Jan. 2, 2001.

Members are encouraged to review candidate qualifications and share their views with their Governors before Jan. 2. To obtain a biographical sketch and candidate information sheet or for further information, contact the Executive Office Coordinator, at 800-523-1546, ext. 2814, or by e-mail at fmoore@acponline.org.
