Elections

The ASCP Bylaws provide for 14 elected members on the Board of Directors: 4 officers (president, chairman of the board, president-elect, and secretary-treasurer) and 10 directors (2 elected from each of ASCP’s 5 regions). All board members are elected by the ASCP membership except for the secretary-treasurer who is elected by the Board of Directors. In addition, the Executive Director/CEO serves as an ex officio, non-voting member of the Board.

ASCP elects a new president-elect and 5 new directors every year. Elections run for approximately six weeks during the summer and all eligible members are strongly encouraged to participate.

Nominations Process

Each year ASCP seeks eligible and qualified candidates for the Society’s Board of Directors for each of six (6) positions: president-elect, and five (5) of the director positions. The president-elect transitions to president and then to chairman of the board. The Nominating Committee is appointed by the president in late summer.

The following criteria are considered by the ASCP Nominating Committee in selecting candidates to stand for election:

  • membership in ASCP for at least two years
  • attendance at two or more ASCP meetings
  • productive service and involvement in the Society’s national and/or chapter leadership groups

Elections Process

Online balloting begins on May 1, 2017 for all ASCP members who are eligible to vote until May 26, 2017 at 11:59:59 pm Eastern time.

Once the election results are officially tallied by an independent, 3rd party election company, the outcome is reported to the Chairman of the Nominating Committee and the Executive Director/CEO. The Chairman of the Nominating Committee first notifies all candidates of the outcome of the election, and only then is the outcome announced to the membership at large. New board members begin serving after their installation during a general session at ASCP's Annual Meeting and Exhibition in November.
