2023 Board of Directors Election

Four members of ANCOR’s Board of Directors are nearing completion of their terms. All four have indicated their intention to run for election or reelection to serve a three-year term beginning October 1. ANCOR’s Leadership Development Committee is endorsing the candidacies of all four incumbent board members, including:

The Leadership Development Committee’s endorsements of the candidates listed above are based on a review of the current composition of the Board and needs over the next three years. These candidates each meet the required criteria and bring extensive experience serving on ANCOR committees, councils and task forces, as well as geographic and service model diversity and professional skills.

Call for Nominations

Although the Leadership Development Committee has endorsed the individuals above, these endorsements do not preclude any other full member from nominating themselves or another member to serve on the Board of Directors.

The opportunity to help lead ANCOR is a notable personal and professional achievement. By serving on the ANCOR Board of Directors, you can expect to work hard, get results, and have an enriching experience. Board members devote their time, energy, creativity, and ideas to leading ANCOR into the future. Board Directors are elected for three-year terms and can serve for a total of two terms. To learn more about the role, read the Board Director Roles & Responsibilities. To learn more about the current composition of the Board of Directors, meet our Directors.

Traditionally, in-person board meetings are held three times a year. (Please note that Directors must cover travel expenses associated with attending in-person meetings.) One meeting occurs in conjunction with our annual Policy Summit & Hill Day in Washington, DC (this year, the meeting will be October 9, the day prior the start of the Summit). The other two meetings occur at dates and locations to be announced but are typically held in February and July. In addition, board members are expected to contribute to key ANCOR initiatives, currently including the ANCOR Disability Champions’ Political Action Committee and the ANCOR Foundation.

Board members also meet via Zoom on a periodic basis when needed, typically the first Friday of the month at 11 am ET. (Please note that meetings may be held via Zoom instead of face-to-face due to unexpected circumstances.)

The composition of the Board reflects the needs of leadership over a cross-section of geographic, demographic, service model, talent and expertise attributes. For additional information, read ANCOR’s diversity statement.
