Leadership Development Committee
Roles and Responsibilities
The Leadership Development Committee (LDC), formerly known as the Committee on Nominations, is a standing committee of the AMCP Board. The mission of the LDC is to identify a qualified slate of candidates to recommend to the AMCP Board for applicable open Director and Officer positions for approval consistent with the mission of AMCP, in accordance with guidelines set forth in the AMCP Bylaws and the Board-approved Operational Policies and Procedures Manual. All business of the Leadership Development Committee is confidential.
AMCP Bylaws, Article V: Board of Directors, Section 5.4 Nomination of Directors and Officers, stipulates that:
(a) The Leadership Development Committee shall recommend a slate of candidates for applicable open Director and Officer positions based on qualification factors established from time to time by the Board. The slate of Officer positions shall include a President-Elect in each year and a Treasurer when such position is scheduled to be vacant. The Leadership Development Committee shall recommend one (1) individual for each open position. The slate of candidates for open Director and Officer positions will be chosen from among the applications received by the Leadership Development Committee, and the slate shall be recommended to the Board by a majority vote of the Leadership Development Committee.
(b) The Board shall consider the slate of candidates for Director and Officer positions recommended by the Leadership Development Committee and shall either approve the proposed slate or reject it with instructions to the Leadership Development Committee. Once a slate of candidates has been approved by the Board, it shall be presented to the membership for consideration.
The Leadership Development Committee consists of five (5) voting members, each of whom shall be an Active Member, a Voting Corporate Member Representative, or an Honorary Member otherwise eligible for the Active Member membership category in good standing with AMCP: the individual who had served in the role of Immediate Past President in the prior year shall serve as the Chairperson; the current Immediate Past President shall serve as a member; three (3) members shall be appointed by the Board as at-large members, provided that at least one (1) of the at-large appointees is a past Board member. In addition, the CEO shall serve as ex-officio, non-voting member of the Leadership Development Committee.
