NACEP has four Commissions: Accreditation, Advocacy, Engagement, and Research. The chair of each commission is also a member on the Board. These Commissioners are the only members permitted to simultaneously hold positions both on the Board and a Commission.
Advocacy, Engagement, and Research Commission Positions:
NACEP has three, nine-member Commissions consisting of four appointed positions and five elected members representing each of NACEP’s geographic regions. Terms are two years and positions open on roughly an annual basis. Eligibility requirements vary by position. The Commission chair may serve no more than two consecutive terms.
Election and Appointment Processes and Timeframes:
Each election is preceded by a call for nominations, typically in the spring, and elections are typically held in the summer. Elections and openings for appointed positions are announced through email and posted on our website. Appointed positions are filled by a variety of approaches: by a call for nominations, by candidates stating an interest in an open position to a Board, Commissioner or staff member, or by identifying past and current volunteer leaders and NACEP members. Terms vacated by the premature departure of any member are filled by appointment.
Calendar of Advocacy, Engagement, and Research Commission Positions:
NACEP’s by-laws stipulate that a calendar of upcoming positions is published. The charts below summarize positions and projected terms for 2022-2024.
