Eligible nominees for all Board positions shall be full-time and/or tenured or tenure-track faculty members of full member schools. Nominees for the position of Regional Director must be on the faculty of a full member school in the represented region.


Second Vice President

The Second Vice President serves a four-year term beginning July 1, 2017. The elected person serves for one year respectively as Second Vice President, First Vice President/President-Elect, President, and Past President. As President, the elected individual presides at meetings of the Association and is responsible for calling meetings of the Board of Directors, preparing an agenda and presiding at such meetings. The President coordinates activities of the board, Association committees, and liaison representatives. The President serves as ACSA liaison with the officers of the American Institute of Architects, the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards, the National Architectural Accrediting Board, and the American Institute of Architecture Students; and serves as ACSA representative to the Five Presidents’ Council. During the term of office, the President also prepares a brief report of activities of the Association and the Board of Directors for dissemination to the constituent associations.

The Secretary/Treasurer serves for a three-year term beginning July 1, 2017, keeps minutes of all Board of Directors meetings, and distributes copies of the minutes to all members of the Board. The Secretary/Treasurer maintains the Bylaws and Rules of the Board of the Association as well as all other documents required by corporate law, incorporating revisions and additions as required by action of the Association and Board of Directors. The Secretary/Treasurer oversees the financial accounts and the records of the Association and serves as Parliamentarian for the Association in connection with its Annual Meeting. 

The 2017 Nominations Committee is chaired by Marilys Nepomechie. Additional members include Carlos Reimers, Corey Griffin & Stephen Luoni, University of Arkansas. The Committee will review nominations for the national officers and develop a slate of two candidates for each position.


Mid-Atlantic Region Director & Northeast Region Director

The term of office for a Regional Director is three years beginning July 1, 2017. Regional Directors serve the ACSA in at least three ways: As members of the Board of Directors, on a variety of national committees, and as executive officers of their regional constituent associations. In this latter role, the Regional Director sets the agenda and chairs meetings of his or her regional council. He or she maintains a file of regional records, correspondence, and minutes of regional meetings. He or she provides assistance to regional schools and organizations applying for institutional membership. The Director prepares annual reports of regional activities for publication in the Association’s annual report and provides updates to the constituency on both regional and national matters of note. He or she administers the nomination and election of the subsequent Regional Director and performs such other duties as may be assigned by the Board. Regional Directors are required to attend three Board meetings a year: a fall meeting which typically occurs in conjunction with the Administrator’s Conference, a spring meeting which typically occurs in conjunction with the ACSA Annual Meeting, and a summer meeting. 

Each region will have a Regional Nominations Committee made up of regional constituents that will review applications received, and develop a slate of not less than two nor more than three candidates.

Board Election ballots will be sent to all full member schools and appropriate regions by mid-January, 2017. The results of this election will be announced online and at the ACSA Annual Meeting in Detroit, MI in 2017. Candidates will be notified of the results in mid-February. 

Nominations for all ACSA Board positions should include a CV, a letter of interest from the nominee indicating a willingness to serve, and a candidate statement. The deadline for receipt of nominations is October 19, 2016.
