NOTICE: Upcoming 2017 ACC Board of Directors Elections Process to Change

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Earlier this year, the Board of Directors of the American Coal Council (ACC) approved updates to the American Coal Council Bylaws. The primary changes incorporated into the June 10, 2016 Amended and Restated Bylaws of American Coal Council are as follows:

1. Updated for changes in the Colorado statutes (ACC is incorporated in Colorado)
2. Modernized the notice and communication provisions
3. Clarified members’ voting rights and requirements
4. Revised Board member term limits from one term to two terms. This provides Board members with the right (but not the obligation) to serve for two terms. A two-term limit is common among associations, as it provides for a balance of experienced and new Board members.  
The Amended and Restated Bylaws provide for delivering written ballots by electronic mail. ACC plans to send written ballots for election of its 2017 Board of Directors via email to primary designated representatives on November 3, 2016. No ballots will be sent by regular USPS mail. Email will be the only method ACC will use to send the 2017 Board Director ballots. Delivering ballots by email rather than by regular USPS mail will speed up the process of getting ballots to members for voting and save postage costs. ACC members will continue to have the option to return completed ballots via email, fax, or regular mail.
Any questions on this or the Board of Director elections, may be directed to Betsy Monseu at the ACC office at 202.756.4540 or by email to
