Requesting Your Suggestions for ARNOVA Leadership
Tuesday, April 5, 2016
ARNOVA’s Nominations Committee is beginning to work on the slate for the 2016 Election of Board Members and Officers. We seek a diverse set of voices and perspectives in these roles. We urge members to recommend those who they think would serve the Association particularly well. Please submit your recommendations, for yourself or another, by April 20th, 2016.
Board Members and Officers
ARNOVA’s Nominations Committee solicits and welcomes recommendations and volunteers for service on the Board of Directors, and as Officers. Elections will be held in August with service to begin in November 2016 at the Annual Meeting. There will be six at-large positions to fill for the Board, and the position of Secretary. The nominating committee receives the nominations from ARNOVA members and makes recommendations to the ARNOVA Board on which persons to include in the ballot.
As stated in the committee charge:
a. Service to ARNOVA. It’s preferable that Nominees have some previous service to ARNOVA and/or the field. Past service to ARNOVA and/or the field prepares potential Board members for their governance role by helping them understand the operation of the Association. Past service to ARNOVA also indicates a commitment to and willingness to serve the Association.
b. Representation. The slate of nominees should represent the diversity of ARNOVA’s current and prospective member, with attention given to: under-represented populations, disciplinary background, geographical location, home institution, and professional position in the field (e.g., practitioner, scholar). Ensuring the Board members and officers represent a diverse cross section of the Association’s members helps ensure that the Association is responsive to the diversity of interests and needs of its membership.
The person recommended or volunteering must be a member of ARNOVA in good standing. When recommending yourself or another, please submit a brief paragraph about each person recommended to help us understand why you think they would make a valuable contribution to the Board.
