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.
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. Once elected to president-elect, this person automatically moves to president and then to chairman of the board. The Nominating Committee is appointed by the president in late summer. For 2016, the call for nominations of eligible and qualified candidates for the Society’s Board of Directors will run from December 7, 2015 - January 29, 2016. The following are considered by the ASCP Nominating Committee in selecting candidates to stand for election:

Online election opens June 30

Voting by online ballots must be completed by July 31 in order to be counted in the official results.
Election results announced in August
Once the election results are officially tallied, the outcome is communicated to the Chairman of the Nominating Committee and the Executive Director/CEO. Vote counts are never announced. 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 the annual meeting in November.
