January may not feel like election season; most of the pomp and star-spangled banners of the political season fluttered down months ago. Nevertheless, the ACDIS (electronic) ballot box has been primed and dusted, ready for the amazing new candidates who stepped forward this year.

More than 50 volunteers submitted their resumes to the nomination committee. The committee, made up of four members of the existing advisory board, administration, and an at-large ACDIS member, have reviewed the applications, interviewed candidates, and selected 12 individuals from various professional backgrounds as finalists for the ACDIS Advisory Board.

Now it is up the ACDIS membership to review the candidates’ information and choose the individuals you believe will best serve the association for the next three years.

Remember, voting is open only to ACDIS members. Voting instructions are included on the top of the voting page. You must cast four votes total: two votes in group one, and one vote in groups two and three. Once your vote is cast your access to the voting page will be closed to prevent any individual from voting twice.

Note, too, that we are grateful for every one of the individuals who took time to submit their nomination to serve on the advisory board.

Voting will close at the end of the day (11:59 p.m., Eastern) on Thursday, January 29. Please click on this link and login to your ACDIS account to vote.

 

The candidates are:

  • Group 1 (RN background): Claudia E. Baker, Terri McCubbin Graves, Melinda Matthews, Karen Newhouser, Judy Schade, and Paula Tatum
  • Group 2 (MD background): James P. Fee, Thomas W. Huth, and Charles E. Pitzele
  • Group 3 (HIM/coding background): Krystal Haynes, Melissa K. McLeod, Anny Pang Yuen
