The ACLP Board of Directors provides governance and oversight for ACLP operations and initiatives. The role of each Board member is to act in the best interest of the organization as a whole and to exercise the legal and financial duties of stewardship. It is vital to the growth and success of the organization that strong and committed individuals are elected to leadership positions.
ACLP follows a best practice approach to board elections, in which the Nominating Committee undertakes a formal process to review candidates and develop a final recommended slate to present to the membership.
For the 2017 election, the ACLP Nominating Committee considered all candidates whose names were put forward during the nominations process. In order to be eligible for consideration, a candidate must be a Certified Child Life Specialist and an ACLP member in good standing, with demonstrated leadership abilities and a history of active engagement in the organization and/or the child life profession.
