  • Tom Ford, North Dakota (currently serving as ADC Vice President)
  • Kimberly Huth, Illinois
  • Scott Norton, Texas (currently serving as ADC Treasurer)
  • Stacey Shepard, Virginia
  • Jerrod Wheeler, Missouri

Two individuals are recommended to fill existing board vacancies and serve for the remainder of the unexpired terms:

  • Elaine Bryant, Ohio, for a two-year term expiring in 2026
  • Keith Graf, Texas, for a one-year term expiring in 2025

Check out the candidates’ bios.
