Deadline Extended for Nominations to AACTE Board and Advisory Committees

Engage as a Volunteer

As the academic year draws to a close and you reflect on your accomplishments and struggles, now is the perfect time to think about a leadership role with AACTE in the year ahead. Educator preparation is an essential element in revolutionizing education and combatting the divisive issues threatening our nation’s education systems. Now more than ever, your association needs committed, talented, and thoughtful leaders.

If you are ready to assume a leadership role in the national educator preparation community or  know someone who is, AACTE is extending the nomination deadline to serve on the AACTE Board of Directors or a programmatic advisory committee to May 15. 

AACTE is currently seeking applications from volunteers to stand for election as an at-large representative to the Board of Directors. There will be two openings for at-large representatives.

Additionally, AACTE is seeking volunteers to serve on 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

To learn first-hand about serving on the Board or an advisory committee, read about the experiences of AACTE Board Chair Michael E. Dantley and Liz Kolb, former chair of the Committee on Innovation and Technology.


AACTE Chief Representatives and Institutional Representatives are eligible to serve on the Board of Directors, if there has been at least three years since any prior service on the Board.

All faculty, staff, and administrators from member institutions are eligible to serve on a programmatic advisory committee. Members may not serve on more than one programmatic advisory committee at the same time.

Self-nominations are accepted. The nominator and nominee must be from current AACTE member institutions.

Timing and Commitment

Terms of Board service are for three years from March 1, 2023, to February 28, 2026. Board candidates will be selected by October 2022 and a member election for Board vacancies will occur in November 2022. The Board meets three times each year, with one of those meetings typically 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, 2023. Committees typically meet once in person during the AACTE Annual Meeting and virtually during the remainder of the year.

The call for nominations closes May 15, 2022.
