Each fall the Nominating Committee solicits applications for open positions to over 90 committees across the College. ACC's new governance process emphasizes specific competencies needed on a committee at a given point in time. This will vary, based on current ACC activities, skill sets possessed by current committee members, and needed skills/competencies related to rotation of members. As we seek to build and foster an ongoing pipeline of diverse leaders with a diverse set of competencies, participation in the committee nomination process is crucial.
