Board Nominations

Interested in Being Part of ACEP Leadership?

Nominations for National ACEP Board of Directors and Council Officers are NOW OPEN

The 2023 candidates will be announced after the April Board of Directors meeting. 


March 15, 2023 - Nominations for the ACEP Board of Directors due.

March 31, 2023 – The Nominating Committee convenes to select the slate of candidates for the 2023 ACEP President-Elect, Board of Directors, and Council Officer elections. 


The ACEP Nominating Committee is accepting nominations from individual and component bodies for the national ACEP Board of Directors, Council speaker, and Council vice speaker.

A true measure of a leader is knowing when it is time to accept the challenge of leadership. One must carefully consider their education, life experiences, and potential to determine when they are ready to lead. If you know you are ready to lead, take the initiative to contact your chapter president or section chair to express your interest in nomination and ask that a nomination letter be submitted on your behalf. 

Among other factors, the Nominating Committee will consider activity and involvement in the College, the Council and component bodies, leadership experience in other organizations or practicing institution, candidate diversity, and specific experiential needs of the organization when considering the slate of candidates.

To qualify for a Board position or Council office, a candidate must:

  • be highly motivated to serve ACEP and be committed for three years for a Board position or two years for Council office;
  • be an ACEP member in good standing with no delinquent dues;
  • show evidence of ACEP involvement in both national and chapter activities (such as current or past chapter officer, current or past national committee leadership, current or past Council membership, or current or past section leadership);
  • show chapter and/or section support for candidacy.

Criteria for nomination as Speaker or Vice Speaker include:

  • nominees must be active members of the Council (presently or recently);
  • nominees must be active nationally (presently or recently);
  • there will be no exclusions because of past service; and
  • current or past service on the Council Steering Committee and/or other Council committees is highly desirable.
