The nominating committee is recruiting the following officers to be elected at the 2009 annual meeting:
- President-elect (to serve as president 2010-2012)
- Treasurer (2009-2011)
- Program vice president (2009-2011)
- Five members of the 2009-2010 nominating committee
At the end of September, additional information about the recruiting was included in a mailing to all branch presidents. The mailing included the nomination form for the elected positions (PDF, Word) and a copy of the talent bank form that those who would like to contribute as committee members are encouraged to complete. [The committee is working with teambuilding chair Judy Atkinson to encourage other paths to AAUW NC leadership.]
As of October 31, 2008, the committee has started active recruiting, but does not have any candidates to report. No one has filled out the talent bank form.
Key issue for the board: Recruiting new leaders (both for the executive committee, for the vacant positions on the board — particularly fundraising, and for other committee positions) is critical to the health of the organization, and is a responsibility of all board members.
