NACUC Executive Committee

The NACUC Executive Committee is the elected leadership body of the association. Its members (also called the association's Directors) are elected by a majority of the voting members present at an annual conference of the association. It includes the ten officers of the association--the President, Vice President, Association Secretary, Treasurer, Membership Secretary, three Conference Coordinators (past, present, and future), and two New Member Representatives--as well as three At Large Representatives.

The Directors' term limits are staggered to provide stability and continuity for the association as well as a regular change of leadership--at least five positions change each year. A Nominating Committee chaired by the Vice President receives nominations and presents a suggested slate to the voting membership at each annual conference, with attention to diversity of such factors as geographical distribution, institution nature and size, race, gender, sexual orientation, and religious and philosophical tradition.
