2013 Biography: 

Scott Cancelosi (pronounced Cancel-oh-see) has been with the Arizona Secretary of State’s office since 1996. ACR members originally referred to him as “Code Boy” and then “SPaM” Special Projects Man, before becoming director of the Public Services Division. The Public Services Division files and chapters legislative bills, files and prints Arizona administrative rules and publishes paper and electronic office publications at www.azsos.gov. Scott’s boss, Arizona Secretary of State, Ken Bennett is currently the NASS liaison to ACR.

A “jack of all trades” and “master of none,” Scott is the office’s multimedia and marketing guru. He is a graphic, form, map, and web designer; a photographer and videographer; a sign and poster maker; publications’ master; records retention guy; and special projects guy. He also serves as the office’s crisis manager as Continuity of Operations (COOP) Coordinator and Pandemic Coordinator. It’s no wonder he’ll give you a blank stare when you ask what he does for a living. That “deer in the headlights” look just means he’s listening to the voices bounce around in his head telling him which task to complete first. Scott considers his greatest attribute to be “a skilled and trained public servant not afraid to point out the obvious.” He also speaks fluent sarcasm, and this was BEFORE he survived cancer in 2012.

Scott is a public member of the Arizona Historical Advisory Commission (AHAC). Among other duties AHAC was entrusted to plan Arizona’s Centennial in February 2012 with its main function to approve legacy projects. Scott served as treasurer; designed the commission’s centennial website, www.azcentennial.gov; and designed Arizona’s official Centennial gold, silver and copper medallions.

Scott has been a member of the Administrative Codes and Registers (ACR) Section of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) since 1997. He has served as a former chair of ACR’s Robert J. Colborn Award Committee; chair of ACR’s Web Committee; ACR secretary/treasurer/historian; and as vice president.

He is currently through half of his term as president and is looking forward to his emeritus member status once his term ends. As emeritus member he plans to reap all benefits listed under ACR Bylaws, Article IX. Emeritus Member. At a future conference he plans to submit emeritus member bylaw amendments worth reaping.

Scott has a Bachelor’s degree in journalism and public relations from Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, Ariz. Before beginning his career as a public servant he worked in the newspaper industry and on business publications. Scott most recently had photos published in Arizona, 100 Years Grand, by Lisa Schnebly Heidinger, the official book of the Arizona Centennial; and in Scorpions for Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media, and Cynical Politicos to Secure America’s Border, by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer.

Scott has been labeled by his friends as a “mediocre” guitar player and a singer-songwriter.

His other hobbies include downhill snow skiing, playing the jaw harp and kazoo, and running under the aegis of “Team Survivor.”

Scott lives in Phoenix with his wife Anne, daughter Maria, and Labrador Retriever, Rocky.
