Nominations for AAEES Representative to the ABET Board of Delegates

The AAEES Education Committee is soliciting nominations for the position of AAEES Delegate to the ABET Board of Delegates.

The ABET Board of Delegates meets twice per year (usually in or near Baltimore, MD). The ABET Board of Delegates is responsible for oversight of accreditation operations, election of the ABET Board of Directors, and representing sponsoring organizations. Delegates serve a term of three years, and may be reappointed a maximum of one time for a total of six years. The AAEES Delegate also serves on one or more of the three ABET Area Delegations that meet at the same time. The three Area Delegations to which AAEES will have representation are the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC), the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC), and the Applied Science Accreditation Commission (ASAC). Area and Board Delegates of ABET may not serve in multiple roles as Delegate, Officer, Director, or Commissioner.

Preferred qualifications for this appointment include experience as an ABET Program Evaluator and experience as a member of one of the ABET commissions, although exceptional candidates without these qualifications are also encouraged to apply. If you are interested in being considered for an appointment either as the AAEES Delegate or Alternate Delegate, or would like to nominate someone else, please forward your nomination(s) to the Chair of the AAEES Education Committee, David Chin at dchin@miami.edu. The deadline for nominations is June 15, 2015.
