Being on the AUCCCD Board is an excellent way to assist in leading the organization and to help the association continue on its path as the leaders for college student mental health. The work of Board members includes 2 days of meetings before the annual conference, a mid-year meeting in the Spring that often coincides with other national conferences, board conference calls a few times per year and serving on 2-3 committees. All expenses associated with Board work and responsibilities are covered by AUCCCD.

For our association to continue to thrive, it is imperative that the Board is reflective of the entire membership. This means you are qualified to run! There is no minimum years of experience required to serve on the Board. The Board needs directors from all professional backgrounds, school sizes, personal backgrounds and characteristics. As we all learn to navigate this new world and continue to implement unique college mental health services models, with social justice front of mind, all voices should be represented on the Board. Members who want to contribute, learn, work and have some fun would make excellent Board members! I welcome the opportunity, as do all current Board members, to address any questions you have about serving on this dynamic Board. 

Nominees for President-elect must have previously served on the Board.  The role of president is a 4-year term (president-elect for one year, president for 2 years, past-president for one year).
