AIGAC Call for Nominations
Join the AIGAC Board!
Looking to build our industry, gain experience on a Board of Directors or add “Non-Profit Leadership” to your LinkedIn profile? AIGAC is seeking nominations for board directors, and you are allowed, even encouraged, to nominate yourself if you’re interested.
Come learn the ropes in a friendly, collegial environment and help shape the future of AIGAC and the admissions consulting industry. As our current and past board members can attest, contributing to our board adds skills to your repertoire and opens doors even after board membership has ended. And we have a lot of fun together!
We solicit nominations for Board of Director candidates to run for three seats that commence August 1, each for a three-year term. The minimum qualifications and criteria for nominating and selecting candidates are:

The first step towards a board position is to volunteer for one of our committees, or even to suggest a new one if you have great plans or ideas that don’t quite fit into our current structure. Our current committees (and current chairs in parentheses) are Membership (Scott Shrum), Survey (Scott Edinburgh), Conference (Rachel Korn or Nupur Gupta), Communications (Maria Wich-Vila), Sponsorship (Brett Haber) and Governance (appointed per policies and procedures). Please get in touch with the committee chairs if you’d like to get involved.
