Pursuant to the Association of Professional Chaplains bylaws and governance model, all association members who are certified and in good standing (with the exception of inactive members, students and affiliates) may submit candidates for the respective position(s) by petition containing the signatures of 10% of the voting membership.  Petitions must be received by Monday, June 10, 2019 at 5:00 pm (CT) at the APC national office.  If petitions are received, an election by electronic or mail ballot containing those nominated by the Nominating Committee and those nominated by petition will be conducted between August 1, 2019 and August 31, 2019, with the election results announced September 3, 2019.  If no petitions are received, the candidates shall be considered elected by the membership.
