Candidates for the Board must be members in good standing of AALHE at the time of election. Candidates for the Board should be motivated and committed professionals who have a record of active, voluntary service to the organization and who can fill gaps created by departing members (visit the AALHE Board of Directors page for more information). Nominations are especially encouraged from individuals with experience as a peer reviewer with a regional accreditor and individuals with experience serving non-traditional institutions, arts colleges, HBCUs, and tribal colleges.  

Nominations for the board must include:

  • Name of Nominee.
  • A photo to be included with the ballot (optional). Photos may or may not be used during the election process. In the event one or more nominees choose not to submit a photo, photos will not be used – either all nominees will have a photo or none.

Nominations Process

The slate of nominations will be forwarded to the current Board of Directors for review and approval before elections open on March 8. Not all proposed nominations are necessarily added to the final election slate. The board may choose to select a final nomination slate based on diversity, geographic location, institution type, and skills needed. Nominees not included on the final election slate will be notified by the AALHE Infrastructure Committee Chair.

Elected board members will be asked to make a five year commitment to serve on the Board. Board members are expected to attend the annual meeting at the AALHE Conference and to attend board meetings which occur approximately once a month. Board members are also expected to serve as a board liaison to an AALHE volunteer committee which typically entails a commitment of a few hours per month.
