The Nominating Committee is tasked with ensuring that all candidates are well-respected members of the Arab-American community, are ADC members in good standing, and are committed to furthering the mission of ADC. ADC is an organization that needs to grow and expand its base of support. Finally as with all NGO’s, it falls to the members of the Board of Directors to secure the budget they earmark for the organization. Candidates for the Board election must be capable of seriously contributing to this effort.
