In accordance with chapter bylaws, the GWDC Officer Nominating Committee is seeking nominations for Chapter Officers for the two year term beginning July 1, 2018 and ending June 30, 2020. The positions open for nomination are: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. We also request that nominees be prepared to attend the Board of Director’s Annual Planning Retreat scheduled for June 2-3, 2018 (winners will be notified in May).
Nominations must be received by Friday, April 6, 2018.
The Officer Nominations Committee will review the candidate submissions and identify acceptable candidates to include on the nomination ballot. The Ballot of Officer candidates will be announced in mid-April and all current will be able to vote at that time. Elected Officers will be announced and installed at the GWDC Annual General Meeting on Thursday, June 14, 2016.
All current members of the GWDC are eligible to be nominated. The preference is to have candidates that exhibit prior Chapter Board or non-profit organization experience.
Candidates must also be willing to commit to the time needed to serve as a Chapter Officer. The Officer must be committed to volunteering the amount of time needed to get the job done. Chapter Officers typically volunteer anywhere from two to more than 10 hours per week, depending on the issues facing the Board of Directors at the time.
Article V of the chapter bylaws describes the duties of the elected Chapter Officer positions. A summary of Board of Director responsibilities may also be found here. All Volunteers with the GWDC must be willing to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement, and Conflict of Interest and Willingness to Serve statements.
A nomination form must be completed for each candidate. The nomination form requires information regarding the candidate and the person submitting the nomination. In addition, a brief bio and concise description of the candidate’s interest and experience in non-profit organizations similar to the GWDC is also required. There will also be a confirmation that the candidate will be able to commit to the time needed to fulfill the duties of the Officer position.
It is important the nomination form be complete, descriptive, and concise, as this will be the information used by the Nominating Committee to determine whether the candidate is acceptable.
If you have any difficulty completing the form, please contact Danielle Hollomon, GWDC CVENT Director. If you have any questions about the nomination process, please contact the GWDC Officer Nominating Committee.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
