2020 ACLP Board of Directors Nominations


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. This slate of candidates includes one recommended individual for each available position. 

2020 Board of Directors Nominations


For the 2020 ACLP Board, the ACLP Nominating Committee will consider all qualified candidates whose names are 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. Eligibility for the President-elect role requires past membership on the Board of Directors. All ACLP Board of Directors candidates must accept certain responsibilities and possess key qualifications to be considered for a position on the Board.

Open Positions

For the 2020 election, there are four available positions: President-Elect, Secretary, and two Directors. To read about the roles, responsibilities, and authorities of each position, see Board Positions & Qualifications.

Nominations Process

To nominate another ACLP member or to put forward your own name, please send a message to nominations@childlife.org, providing the candidate's name and contact information (including a current email address and work telephone number). All nominees will be required to complete the Candidate Self-Assessment Form and a Conflict of Interest Form.
