    • Each member institution gets 1 vote per position

    • Candidate information is distributed before WACE online and in WAVES

    • Institutions should caucus before the Annual Business Meeting to decide who to vote for.

    • Virtual ballots are counted during the meeting and if there are any ties, a run-off vote is taken.

    • Positions are elected by a simple majority and announced at the end of the Annual Business Meeting.

4. Am I qualified to serve on Exec?

  • To be a member of the Executive Committee, you must be employed by a member institution.

  • There are no experience or years of service prerequisites to serve on the Executive Committee.

  • For positions such as President/President Elect or Treasurer, it is recommended that candidates have past experience serving on committees or other involvement in the association for better context and understanding of processes.

5. Do I have to attend WACE to be elected?

  • There are a number of benefits to you and your candidacy by attending WACE!
