Nominating Committee


The Nominating Committee is responsible for reviewing nominees solicited from its member Organizations and selecting the slate of candidates for all open AACSB Officer and Director positions being presented for election in January of each year.


The Nominating Committee is composed of:
  • The Board Chair (who serves as Nominating Committee Vice Chair)
  • The Board Vice Chair-Chair Elect
  • The Immediate Past Board Chair (who serves as Nominating Committee Chair), or in the event the Immediate Past Board Chair is unable to serve, the person designated by the current Board Chair and endorsed by the Board of Directors
  • Up to six other members from the membership at large, appointed by the Vice Chair-Chair Elect (who shall preside as Board Chair during the year for which the appointments are made)
