This year, the regional nominating process will follow an alternate schedule and will begin their process of determining the slate of candidates to fill the Regional Governing Board positions in July 2017, so please look for more correspondence on that subject then.
Express Your Interest
To begin the LMA Board nomination process, please review the Eligibility Criteria. If you satisfy the criteria, then complete the Board of Directors Expression of Interest Form by 12:00 p.m. CT on Friday, May 26.
As Board service takes time and dedication, and provides many benefits in return, I also encourage you to read this awesome article when considering your decision to serve.
Additionally, if you know of someone who satisfies the criteria who you think should consider submitting, I encourage you to reach out to them. Volunteering for LMA, in any role, often begins with someone encouraging another to get involved.
Review and Ratification
The Nominating Committee will verify eligibility, interview candidates and references, and put forth a slate for ratification by the membership. If you have questions, please see the FAQ document or contact Executive Director Betsi Roach, another member of the Nominating Committee or me.
LMA members are scheduled to ratify the Board slate in early September 2017, and our new Board members will begin preparing for their service in October for a January 1, 2018 official start date.
