The Advising Communities Division (ACD) steering committee consists of two division representatives (one appointed, one elected); the Executive Office liaison to the ACD; and one member per cluster (selected through an appointment process by the division representatives to serve two-year, staggered terms). That one member representative per cluster is called a Cluster Rep. All members of the Division's steering committee must have completed at least one full term as a Chair.
