James Frank, ACJS 2nd Vice President, is actively seeking Committee Volunteers to serve during his presidency, March 2013 – March 2014. If you are interested in learning more about how to be actively involved in service to ACJS, please attend the ACJS General Business Meeting and Getting Involved in ACJS Committees Session from 9:30 AM until 10:30 AM on Friday, March 16, 2012, in the 16th Floor Sky Lobby of the Marriott Marquis Times Square, or contact Jim at email@example.com. Jim and his committee chairs will discuss the purposes and activities of these committees during the ACJS General Business Meeting and Getting Involved in ACJS Committees session in New York City. Members will have an opportunity to volunteer to serve on a committee at that time. Every ACJS member who volunteers will be placed on a standing or ad hoc committee, to the extent practical.
Committee membership is limited to ACJS members. The composition of all committees will be as diverse as possible with regards to gender, race, region, and length of Academy membership.
Every year ACJS needs volunteers for the Academy’s Standing Committees. Committee volunteers usually serve for one year, beginning with the Friday of the Annual Meeting after the Executive Board meets. However, incoming committee members will be asked to attend meetings for their respective committees during the conference. Appointments to the following ACJS Standing Committees are for one year and are made by the President unless otherwise specified.
- Affirmative Action
- Budget, Finance, and Audit (members are appointed by the 2nd Vice President)
- Constitution and By-Laws (members are appointed by the 2nd Vice President and serve 3 year terms)
- Ethics (members serve 3 year terms and are nominated by the Trustees-at-Large and appointed by the ACJS Executive Board)
- Nominations and Elections (members are appointed by the Immediate Past President)
- Student Affairs
- Academic Review Committee (members are appointed by the 1st Vice President and serve 3 year terms; membership on this committee is restricted to trained certification reviewers)
The success of ACJS depends on having a dedicated cadre of volunteers. Committee membership is an excellent way to make a difference in the future of ACJS.
