AATCC is led by member volunteers. Nominations for the 2023-2024 Board of Directors and President-elect are open through March 31, 2022. This is your opportunity to get involved and shape the leadership and direction of AATCC! You can make sure the board represents you and your interests! Those who serve on the AATCC Board of Directors make a positive impact on the industry while gaining valuable experience and connections that benefit their own careers.
Submit one or more nominations at https://aatcc.org/bod/#nomination. AATCC members will vote by emailed ballot this Fall. The new Board members will be announced in November and serve from January 2023 through December 2024.
The AATCC President-elect serves in this role for two years before serving as President for two years, and then serves as Immediate Past President for another two years, serving six years in total as a member of the Board of Directors. In that time, he or she is a member of multiple administrative committees and helps set the strategy for the Association. Each President brings a new passion and focus.
