Call for Elements of Excellence Core Group Nominations
Monday, March 07, 2022, 5:00 PM EDT
Category: AUCCCD Events

We are sending this message to solicit nominations (including self-nominations) for the Elements of Excellence (E of E) Core Group Task Force.  We encourage and welcome directors from all types of institutions and professional backgrounds to consider being a part of E of E.  Currently we anticipate two openings for new core members on E of E.  Keep reading for more details and background. 

Historical Perspective

The mission of E of E is to provide impetus and structure for AUCCCD to address the following in a coordinated, consistent and collaborative fashion: leadership development, management skills, and creative visioning about current and future issues impacting counseling centers.

The E of E Task Force consists of 12 current AUCCCD members - The “Core Group” - who are nominated and elected to serve.  The Core Group votes on those directors who are nominated and then forwards recommendations to the AUCCCD Board for final approval. Membership on the Core Group is for a three-year term with an option to renew for one additional term of up to three years.  The Core Group will have openings for two new members to become a part of a great and rewarding professional development experience.  Serving on E of E is also another great way to “give back” to the AUCCCD organization. 

Involvement as a Core Group member involves a few responsibilities over the three-year term:

  1. Attend and participate in an annual mid-year (usually late March or early April) meeting to plan programs for the upcoming annual conference.  This meeting typically occurs in a beautiful location in New Buffalo, MI (southwestern Michigan about 1.5 hours from Chicago), and intends to return to meeting in-person this April after meeting virtually the past two years.  Costs of the mid-year meeting are covered by AUCCCD.
  2. Attend and co-lead E of E Sponsored programs at the annual conference.  Typically, E of E sponsors 5 programs, a day-long or half-day pre-conference program, and the day long New Directors Institute at each conference.  These programs are highlighted in the conference brochure to denote E of E sponsorship.

See the attached form for E of E criteria. Nominations should highlight the candidate’s qualifications relative to these criteria. Self-nominations are welcome.

In addition to the nomination, all candidates are asked to complete the E of E Core Member Interest Statement attached to this email and include a current copy of their CV.

Nominations (self and others) should all be forwarded to us by March 7, 2022.
