Prospective applicants should review all materials relevant to the position they are applying. All applicants must submit an Application Form [DOC]. ACC Vice President applicants, please reference the ACC Vice President Position Description [PDF] and ACC President Position Description [PDF] for future responsibilities. Finance Committee Chair-Elect applicants, please reference the ACC Committee Chair-Elect Position Description [PDF], along with the ACC Committee Chair Position Description [PDF], and ACC Treasurer Position Description [PDF] for future responsibilities. Trustee and Public Member Trustee applicants, please review the ACC Trustee Position Description [PDF] and ACC Public Member Trustee Position Description [PDF].

Per ACC's governance, the Nominating Committee encourages all nominators, candidates, and supporters to leverage the Leadership Competency model when recommending candidates. In alignment with the Governance Principles, the Nominating Committee will be applying the Leadership Competencies [PDF] as a framework for discussion of Vice President and Trustee candidates. ACC Leadership Competencies are available here.

In addition to ACC's Leadership Competencies designated above, prospective Trustee candidates should possess additional competencies essential to the functions of the Board of Trustees. Valuable skills and expertise may include, but are not limited to:

  • Member education and knowledge
  • Comprehension of digital and informational technology
  • Knowledge of health systems and institutional strategy
  • Understanding of health policy, including quality and outcomes/population health
  • Proficiency in education and research

Individual Trustees are not expected to possess all of the competencies outlined above. However, the collective composition of the Board will need to contain these competencies.

The Nominating Committee will meet this summer to consider all recommendations and will present a slate of nominations to the ACC/ACCF Board of Trustees for approval.

Current Officers of the College, members of the Nominating Committee, and ACC staff may not provide letters of support. Individuals who are unable to support Officer & Trustee candidates during this nominations cycle are:
