  1. The Nominating Committee shall identify vacancies and solicit nominations via a Call for Nominations for the CFCC. The Call will be distributed to all certificate holders, Special Interest Groups, and allied organizations (e.g., for the public member position) via email blast, web announcements, surface mail, and announcements in The ASHA Leader.
  2. The Nominating Committee will confirm that all nominees meet the appointment criteria and that those presented to the Board of Directors will satisfy the composition requirements. Each member of the Nominating Committee shall independently rank nominees based on a review of the applications. Nominees in audiology will be ranked separately from nominees in speech-language pathology. The entire Nominating Committee will then teleconference to discuss rankings and nominees and will prepare the final slate of candidates. At least two candidates should be identified for each vacant position, if possible.
  3. Following the Nominating Committee teleconference, the slate of names will be forwarded to the Board of Directors for final selection. The slate of potential appointees will be accompanied by a brief outline of the background for each nominee, to include information on previous service on ASHA Committees/Board/or Councils, experience with standards settings activities, and areas of expertise that would complement the work of the CFCC.

Desired Service Qualifications/Experiences

CFCC Nominating Committee members must be actively certified members in good standing. The Chair must have previously served on the CFCC.
