Changes to the Board structure

The current Board of Directors approved several changes in the roles of Board officers at its fall meeting. These changes are effective with the 2024 election: 


All ACES full members in good standing are eligible to run for the Board of Directors. You may nominate yourself or someone else through the online form. 

Full, associate, and student members are eligible to nominate, but all nominees must be full members of ACES and current in their dues when voting opens.

Candidates must have shown a level of involvement in the organization, such as presenting at ACES conferences, undertaking projects on its behalf, serving on a committee, or other ways set out in the ACES bylaws

Only current Directors who have served one full term are eligible for nomination to an Officer position.


Members of the Board of Directors shape the policy and direction of the Society and take on responsibility for projects and routine tasks. Officers have additional duties. See Article IV in the ACES bylaws for more information about specific roles and responsibilities.   

ACES operates by virtue of the voluntary efforts of its members. Anyone seeking a seat on the Board of Directors must be willing to spend a few hours each week on the business of the organization. 

Members of the Board of Directors also are expected to attend the national in-person conference and participate in monthly meetings. In-person meetings are held in the spring and fall. Newly elected Board members are encouraged to attend the spring Board meeting during the conference.
