2021 Board of Directors Nominations
The Nominating Committee aspires to present a slate of candidates that will result in a more diverse Board of Directors, including Black, Indigenous and Native American, Latinx, Asian, LGBTQ+ and members with different abilities as well as those from varying geographical areas, program sizes, cultural backgrounds, and settings (community vs. hospital based vs. academic positions).
For the 2021 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.
