Member Selection Process  

Membership is by election of the Board of Governors, following nomination and balloting by Fellows and review and recommendation by the MSC. The Member Development Committee (“MDC”) assists in development of appropriate candidates for election and in the nomination process.  The process has three components.
Member development.  During the year, the MDC works with Fellows to identify and cultivate potential candidates for membership.  The MDC also assists Fellows in identifying seconders and other resources within the College and in submitting appropriate nomination materials during the nominating period.
Nominations and voting.
 Each Fall, written nominations for new Fellows are submitted, together with information about each of the nominees.   This information is posted on the ACREL website.  Fellows provide input and vote online for nominees.  
Review and selection.  After voting closes, the MSC reviews each candidate’s qualifications, including the information contained in the nominating package and the ballots, and makes recommendations to the Board of Governors.  At the Mid-Year Meeting, the Board determines who will be invited to become new Fellows.
