Governing Board Elections


The 2019 Governing Board elections will take place February 28–April 30 for the positions of President-Elect, Committee Representative, High School Ambassador, Middle School Ambassador, and Elementary School Ambassador.

The election cycle is broken down into two phases: Candidate self-nominations and Member voting. Member voting is now open.

  • Candidate self-nominations will be accepted February 28–March 28
  • Member voting will occur April 16–April 30

Candidate Self-Nominations

  • Candidate nominations will be accepted between February 28 and March 28, 2019.
  • You may not nominate others, however if you know an AACT teacher that you believe would be a good candidate, please encourage them to complete a self-nomination.
  • You may nominate yourself for only one position.
  • Self-nominations will be reviewed by the Nominating and Awards Committee, which will select no more than three (3) candidates per position to appear on the election ballot.

Member Voting

  • Polls open April 16 at noon ET, and close on April 30, 2019 at noon ET.
  • Voting will occur via email All current AACT members will receive an email with voting instructions and a unique pin they must use to access the ballot. (If you have not received an email and believe your membership is still active, please contact us.)
  • Current AACT members will be eligible to cast one ballot, which includes one (1) vote for President-Elect, one (1) vote for Committee Representative, and one (1) vote for an ambassador position.
    • Members should self-identify the grade-band they most associate with, and cast a vote for that one ambassador position. (For example: A high school teacher would most likely cast a vote for the High School Ambassador position.)
  • Vote tabulation will be verified by an AACT staff member not serving on the board. The candidates with the most votes will be elected to office.
  • In the event you are elected, you will receive a phone call or email (based on the personal preferences you indicate on your nomination form) from AACT.
  • Election results will be announced to the AACT community in early May.
