ACA Announces the Opening of Governance Nominations for FY25

This is the time of year when ACA reaches out to our angel community seeking nominations for both the Angel Capital Association’s FY 2025 Board of Directors and committee volunteers to help ACA continue to grow and support our work on angel investing.

As angel investors, we play a critical role in leading economic development through our unrelenting support of the entrepreneurial community and ongoing strengthening of angel investing. The ACA is charging through our growth campaign with expansion of our responsibilities directed toward the global angel community and emerging trends within early capital formation. 

ACA Board of Directors
As ACA continues to fulfill our mission of being the steward and thought leader for the global angel community, we are searching for smart, energetic, highly motivated and accomplished candidates to serve on the ACA Board for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2024.

Desired nominees should have expertise in one or more areas of ACA’s special focus for the coming year: Membership Development, Marketing, Data Analytics, Public Policy and Business Development/Fundraising. Successful candidates should also have experience as senior leaders of angel groups or other organizations within the startup ecosystem. Most importantly, we put a premium on those candidates who have demonstrated the drive and ability to get things done, for ours is a very active and engaged Board. While not a requirement, other selection criteria include a history of effective work on behalf of the ACA. As a transparent and open organization committed to representing the broadest range of angels and angel organizations, we also seek a Board that is geographically and demographically diverse.

Volunteer Opportunities
In addition to Board nominations, the ACA seeks rising angel stars to serve on our volunteer committees and task forces: 

  • Marketing and Membership
  • Syndication
  • Data Analytics & Insights
  • Education & Smart Practices
  • Public Policy

Next Steps
Please submit your selection for the 2025 ACA Board of Directors, term to begin July 1st, 2024, by emailing CEO Pat Gouhin and our Governance Committee Chair, Clay Rankin, by January 26, 2024. Please include the candidate’s bio, email, phone number and LinkedIn profile, plus recommendations from at least two ACA members and their contact information. If you are nominating yourself, you will be counted as one of the two recommenders. You can learn more about ACA's current Board, mission, vision and values here.

Thank you for your assistance in this vital candidate identification process which facilitates ACA’s and the broader angel community’s efforts to drive economic vitality throughout the country and abroad. Entrepreneurs are the engine to economic growth and Angels are the fuel for that engine. The ACA pledges to work on your behalf and continue our mission to foster the success of accredited angel investors through advocacy, education and building effective communities.
