Board of Directors
ARCPA's Board of Directors is comprised of 14 members: the Chair, Chair-Elect, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and nine elected Directors. In addition, 13 Ex-Officio members of the Board include the Past Chair, presidents of the 10 ARCPA chapters, the AICPA Council Representative, and the AICPA Key Person Representative. They are all nonvoting Ex-Officio members of the Board. The combined total is 27 members.
Officers serve a one-year term, except for the Secretary and Treasurer, who serve for two years. Directors serve a three-year term. Ex-Officio Directors serve a one-year term. All these terms begin on April 1 of each year and end on the following March 31. The AICPA Council Representative serves a three-year term which begins preceding the AICPA Fall Council Meeting. The AICPA Key Person Representative serves a two-year term and may succeed himself/herself.
A slate of Officers and Directors is submitted by the Nominations Committee to the Board of Directors for approval, and then published to the membership at least 30 days prior to a scheduled Annual Business Meeting, which is held in December. Additional nominations for Officers and Directors may be made from the floor at the Annual Meeting. The ARCPA membership elects the new Officers and Directors at the Annual Meeting.
