Last Call for AACP President-elect and Speaker of the House Nominations

AACP seeks qualified candidates for President-elect for 2013–2014 and Speaker of the House for 2013–2015.

Carter, chair of the AACP Nominating Committee, or Dr. Lucinda L. Maine.

Election of Speaker-elect will occur in Kissimmee during the 2012 Annual Meeting. The Speaker-elect serves one year (non-Board position) prior to assuming the duties of Speaker in July 2013. He or she will preside over the 2014 and 2015 House of Delegates. For more information, please contact Dr. Cynthia J. Boyle, AACP Speaker of the House, or Dr. Lucinda L. Maine.
