At the annual conference in August, NASJE’s newest Board members will be sworn into office. Candidates are recommended by the membership to NASJE’s Nominating Committee, chaired by Past President Caroline Kirkpatrick. Other committee members (representatives from each region) include Crystal Banks (DC), Ben Barham (AK), Tony Simones (MO), and Kelly Tait (NV). Three members of the committee also serve on the Diversity, Fairness and Access Committee, and all committee members are tasked with promoting diversity of the slate of candidates.
Within the next few weeks, Caroline will be sending an email to the membership requesting recommendations for individuals who might serve in NASJE leadership positions. The Nominating Committee assesses members’ interest in serving and assures those nominated or voicing interest are qualified to serve. The Vice President position is always on the ballot, but this year, terms also expire for the Secretariat and the Southeast Regional Director. The Midwest Regional Director position will also be open.
Do you know a member who would serve the organization well? Are you interested in serving? Your input, in one way or another, is important. Keep in mind that you may nominate yourself, and please consider reaching out to the Nominating Committee.
Appendix B, NASJE Board Resolution 1, in NASJE’s Constitution and Bylaws, provides the guidelines for nominations. Details related to the duties and responsibilities of each position are found in the Policies and Procedures. After reviewing that information, if you have questions about serving, please contact Caroline: firstname.lastname@example.org.
