The Region 3 Nominating Committee is now accepting applications from Region 3 members who are interested in the Secretary position. Due to the succession system utilized by Region 3, the officer plan is a three-year commitment. During year one, 2018-2019, the candidate will serve as the Region 3 Secretary. After year one, the candidate will serve as Chair-elect for 2019-2020, and succeeding to the Chair of Region 3 for 2020-2021.
You are also reminded that during the year of your Chair’s position, it is the responsibility of the Chair to plan and implement a productive, informative, and profitable Region 3 Fall Conference with the expectation that the Fall Conference adds to the reserves of the Region 3, and covers the Scholarships and Teaching Awards for the year, as well as any other operating expenses for the year.
Based on the recommendation in the Regional Council Handbook (2017) and past practices of Region 3, "the office of Chair should alternate between Associate Degree schools and Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree schools;" therefore, the nominee for 2018-2019 Secretary position should be from a Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree institution. However, if there are no viable candidates from the rotation, it can be filled by a member from the alternate degree level. According to the ACBSP bylaws, the terms of office begin July 1 and end June 30.
The Nominating Committee will vet the Candidates and will recommend a candidate/candidates during the annual regional meeting on October 2018 at Callaway Gardens, GA. Nominations will not be accepted from the floor. The candidate will be given 3-minutes to introduce her/himself and make brief comments regarding qualifications and desire to serve.
The Region has adopted a policy of vetting all candidates. It’s required that you have the full support of your institution to serve as a Region 3 Officer. An Officer Interest Questionnaire must be completed by anyone who is interested in serving as a Region 3 Officer. You may self-nominate or you may nominate someone. If you nominate someone, please ensure the individual has the support of his/her institution.
If you are interested, please complete the form and email it by September 18, 2018, to Dr. A. Dale King, at email@example.com, so the Nominating Committee will have adequate time to vet each candidate.
Thank you in advance for your interest in serving as a Region 3 Officer.
Prof. Cindi Bearden
Region 3 Chair
