2020 Board Elections

Tuesday, November 5, 2019  

Dear ACCT Members,

I hope all of you had a productive and busy summer season. It is time to begin preparing for the 2020 ACCT Board of Directors election. This year three positions (3) are open for election. Two positions (2) are elected by the Accredited Professional Vendor Members (PVMs), and one position (1) is elected by the Individual and Organizational members of ACCT (B2B, B2C and Stakeholder/Affiliate).

Election Procedures:

According to the current Association for Challenge Course Technology bylaws, any member of the association may nominate an individual, with that person’s permission, to serve on the Board of Directors, and any member may place his/her own name up for nomination for a position on the Board of Directors.

Individual and Organizational Nominations:

A candidate must be an Individual or Organizational member of ACCT and may not work for a Professional Vendor Member.  Candidates in this part of the election may not run for a seat elected by PVMs in the same election.  Anyone wishing to run for this Board seat must send in a nomination form by Friday, December 6, 2019.  The nomination form can be submitted electronically and must include the following:
