Pursuant to the ACSSW bylaws, as the President-Elect, I am charged with seeking and selecting more than one nominee for each of the positions to be elected for the next term. I will submit a slate of candidates/nominees for approval by the Board at the annual meeting which will take place at the ACA conference in Atlanta, GA in April 2022. Below are the two open positions available for nominations:


  • President- Elect:  The President-Elect shall perform the duties of the President in the absence or incapacity of the President as determined by the Board.
