Share |

 

 

Every two years, the ACA's Safety Education & Instruction Council (SEIC) Board as well as the SEIC's Discipline Committees request nominations and elect voting members who are committed to volunteering their skills and expertise to the continued development of ACA's education and instructional programs.

 

During the fall of 2019, the ACA National Office collected nominations and is now conducting a formal vote for the committees listed below; those elected to these positions will serve for the 2020-2021 term (January 1, 2020 - December 31, 2021).

 

Please click on your discipline below to review nominees & to place your vote. *You must be logged into your ACA membership account to view these pages. **You many only vote for discipline(s) in which you are currently certified.

 

Voting will end on Monday, November 18th. Winners will be announced the following week.

 

ACA certified Instructors, Trainers, and Educators are invited to place their votes for disciplines in which they are currently certified. The SEIC bylaws state: "All Level 1 Instructors, ITs, and ITEs are able to vote in one of their appropriate discipline committee elections. For example, a currently certified Level 1 Canoe Instructor may cast their vote in the River Canoe Committee Elections, or the Canoe Touring/Freestyle Canoe Committee Elections (but not both).


All Instructors and Trainers are invited to vote for At-Large members and International Representatives.

 

At-Large Voting Members

At-large voting members of the SEIC are elected to represent a holistic perspective of all ACA instructional disciplines, rather than one discipline/craft. Only currently certified ACA Instructors, Trainers and Educators are eligible for this category.

International Representatives

SEIC is also electing International Representatives to represent the wide diversity of ACA members, instructors, clubs, and paddling communities in non-US countries.
