• The Commission welcomes nominations from all administrative levels as well as faculty within member institutions; however, the Commission is actively seeking nominations from those at the levels of chief executive officer and chief academic officer within member institutions.

• A public representative is an individual who is not an employee, governing board member, owner, shareholder, or consultant of an institution accredited by the Commission or a candidate for accreditation by the Commission; who is not a member of any trade association or membership organization related to, affiliated with, or associated with the Commission; and who is not a spouse, parent, child, or sibling of any of the above.

Commission members spend approximately eight to 10 days each year on Commission business, including Commission meetings and accreditation committee meetings. The full Commission usually meets for one day in March, June, and November.Nominations for one or more of the vacancies need to complete the nomination form by March 29, 2019.

Please note that the Committee on Membership cannot consider a nominee unless it has a copy of the individual’s current resume, which should be provided with the nomination. It is not necessary to provide a full curriculum vitae.
