How the election works

The election of College Officers and Regents will take place by electronic ballot in January 2008. The voting body consists of 32 members of the Board of Regents and 86 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 May 17, in Washington, D.C.

College Officers and eligible second-term Regents will be voted by “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 candidate 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.

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, 2008.

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 Florence Moore, Executive Office Coordinator, at (800) 523-1546, ext. 2814, or by e-mail at fmoore@acponline.org.
