ACUNS relies on the work of volunteers to assume leadership roles and manage the organization. ACUNS likewise develops partnerships with universities around the world in order to organize its flagship programs – the Annual Meeting, ACUNS-UN Workshop, and the Global Governance journal. To this end, ACUNS calls on individuals and institutions to nominate themselves or their peers to assume various roles for the organization. These positions offer leadership opportunities for individuals and enhance the prestige of institutional partners. All ensure that ACUNS can fulfill its mission to advance scholarship on the UN system and international affairs.

Leadership Nominations: Every year ACUNS Calls for nominations for Directors of the Board and for Officers. More information on these positions and on the nomination process is available here.

Global Governance Host: Every five years, a new university assumes responsibility for hosting the Global Governance journal. In tandem, a new editorial team takes the reins for managing the publication. Brigham Young University is the host for the journal. ACUNS will be announcing a call for a new university host in 2022. More information on the call for nominations for Global Governance hosts is available here.

ACUNS-UN Workshop Host: Every year a different university or research institution hosts the ACUNS-UN Workshop, typically held in July or August. More information on the call for nominations for workshop hosts is available here.
