The Nominations/Elections Committee is responsible for planning, developing and implementing the Council's election process. This Committee is charged with preparing a slate of nominees for each of the vacancies on the Board of Directors, which it shall circulate in writing to all voting members of the Council in good standing not less than thirty (30) days prior to the date of the published election dates. The Nominations/Elections Committee shall also develop electronic voting procedures and make all preparations for balloting and the election of persons to serve on the Board of Directors. The Committee shall conduct and manage the election process with oversight of the Board.


The nomination period is May 22 – June 5, 2019. This period is not only an opportunity to vote for AMAC leadership but also to help frame and support the future of the organization.

As a voting member, your initial impact on the direction, goals and initiatives of AMAC is in the election process. Whether standing for office yourself, nominating a viable candidate for office, supporting a nominee, or simply making certain that your vote is counted, participation in the election process is not only an opportunity, it is also a responsibility.
