2023 AUCD Board Elections: Seeking Members for Nominating Committee

To elect Association members to the AUCD Board of Directors, we first need a Nominating Committee which consists of both Board and network members. At least two (2) individuals from the network are currently being sought to serve on this committee. Members of the Nominating Committee are NOT being nominated to serve on the Board, but rather to serve on the committee that reviews the submissions for people to serve on the Board. Individuals can nominate another individual to serve on the Nominating Committee or can self-nominate.
