Full members have an opportunity to play a big role in ACES, and to develop professionally and personally themselves, by joining the Board of Directors. Nominations will be accepted Dec. 15 – Jan. 15.
Five positions on the Board of Directors will be up for election: three at-large positions, as well as the Secretary and Treasurer positions.
To nominate yourself or someone else:
Vice President Samantha Enslen will be resigning her position effective April 2021. The Board of Directors voted to appoint Neil Holdway to serve the second year of the vice presidential term.
Nick Jungman is running for re-election as Treasurer. Three of the at-large board incumbents whose terms are expiring in 2021 will be running to keep their seats as well.
Board of Directors members work as volunteers and regularly meet and vote to determine ACES’ direction. They are expected to devote a few hours each week to various projects and committees. Board of Directors members are expected to attend the annual conference and their regular annual meeting and are expected to attend periodic Board of Directors meetings in person or by phone. The secretary and treasurer have further duties. All are summarized in ACES’ bylaws.
Electronic ballots will be available Feb. 15 to March 1. Voting information will be sent to each eligible member in good standing, as of Feb. 15, via email. Voting will be done through a secure online ballot.
More information on the candidates will be provided at that time.
ACES’ Board of Directors members lead a major nonprofit organization that now serves more than 4,100 members, and advocates for editing in various businesses, media, and platforms. ACES has thrived and grown thanks to scores of volunteer board members over two decades — and those board members have learned business and leadership skills themselves — and now ACES seeks its next leaders to take it into the future.
