The ACWA region election process is under way for the 2018-2019 term. The elections reconstitute the boards of each region, including the region chair, vice chair and board members.
Nominating committees were appointed by the current chairs of each region. The committees are tasked with identifying and reviewing qualifications of eligible region chair, vice chair and board member candidates for the 2018-’19 term.
Election materials will be emailed to ACWA member agency General Managers and Board Presidents on May 1. Included in the email will be links to information about the role and responsibilities of the regions, election timeline, region rules and regulations, candidate nomination form and a sample resolution.
Interested candidates are required to submit a signed resolution of support from their agency’s board of directors in order to be eligible for the election. All candidate nomination forms, signed resolutions and candidate information must be submitted to ACWA no later than June 30, 2017.
The elections will begin on August 1, 2017, once the region nominating committees announce their recommended slate for each of the 10 region boards. An official electronic ballot identifying the recommended slate and any additional candidates for consideration will be sent to all ACWA member agencies. Only one ballot per agency will be accepted.
