The 2016 ACB Conference and Convention will take place July 1-9 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Even if you are unable to attend in person, you can still enjoy the week of general session presentations and special interest programs. You can listen to the events through the ACB Radio stream. Access it by downloading the ACB Link iPhone app, listen online at www.acbradio.org, or call 605-475-8130.
Although you may not be in attendance at the ACB Conference and Convention, PCB seeks your feedback in determining which candidates our organization should support during the ACB elections. As an affiliate, PCB will cast 16 delegate votes in each election race. This year five director positions on the ACB Board of Directors and three positions on the ACB Board of Publications are up for election. Please join other PCB members on Wednesday, June 29 at 7:30 p.m. for a caucus teleconference.
The caucus will give you an opportunity to meet the candidates and share your feedback on their qualifications. At least seven candidates up for ACB election will join us. Each candidate will be given three minutes to speak and then we will open the floor for your questions to them. At approximately 8:20 p.m. we will ask the candidates to disconnect from the call so that we can discuss the candidates’ qualifications and determine which candidates we want to support when PCB casts its votes in Minneapolis.
Unfortunately the teleconference is a long-distance phone call. If you do not have an unlimited long-distance calling plan, don’t hesitate to ask one of your chapter’s leaders to connect you into the call. You can also contact the PCB office at 877-617-7407 by Monday, June 27 to request a third-party connection into the caucus teleconference. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend.
