The Nominating Committee will favor candidates with a history of commitment to ACNS, including involvement at the committee level and attendance at past ACNS Annual Meetings. Successful candidates must be able to commit to attending and actively participating in Council meetings, thinking strategically with regard to the Society’s best interests, and acting to ensure the Society’s future viability.

Following the close of the nomination period, the Nominating Committee will:
