Last Call for Nominations to AACTE Board and Advisory Committees

Engage as a Volunteer

Have you been thinking about volunteering for a leadership position in AACTE, but put it off because of the pandemic? As life begins to return to a “new normal,” now is a great time to step forward. Educator preparation is an essential element of our nation’s recovery from the pandemic, and AACTE is at the center of national efforts to ensure that all students receive the expert instruction and support they need and deserve.

“Serving on the AACTE Board of Directors has been a valuable way to make a difference, and has given me insights and connections that significantly added to my ability to serve my institution. I have grown as a leader, broadened my professional network, and gained a deeper understanding of our field and the wider political and social environment. It also has been deeply gratifying to contribute to AACTE’s work in advancing educator preparation,” said AACTE Board Chair Bob Floden. Read the full blog to learn more about serving on the Board.

Nominations are due by this Friday, May 28 to serve on the AACTE Board of Directors or on of the following programmatic advisory committees:

  • Educator Diversity
  • Global Diversity
  • Government Relations and Advocacy
  • Holmes Program
  • Innovation and Technology
  • Meetings and Professional Development
  • Membership Development and Capacity Building
  • Research and Dissemination

“These committees serve the association by providing expert member advice on a wide range of topics related to AACTE’s programs and services. Whatever your professional interests, there is likely a committee that would benefit from your participation,” said Shandra Claiborne,  chair of the AACTE Committee on Membership Development and Capacity Building.

Members may not serve on more than one programmatic advisory committee at the same time. The nomination process is quick.  Just click on the link below, answer a few questions, and upload your vita or resume.

Timing and Commitment

There are two expected vacancies for at-large representatives to the Board of Directors. Terms of service are for three years from March 1, 2022 to February 28, 2025. Board candidates will be selected by October 2021 and a member election for Board vacancies will occur in November 2021. The Board typically meets three times each year, with one of those meetings occurring in-person at the AACTE Annual Meeting.

Committee appointments will be approved by the AACTE Board of Directors in early fall. Those appointed will serve a three-year term beginning March 1, 2022. Committees typically meet once in person during the AACTE Annual Meeting and virtually during the remainder of the year.
