Open Leadership Positions

LMA seeks to fill the following voting International Board positions:

  • President-Elect (3-year commitment: President-Elect in 2019, President in 2020, Immediate Past-President in 2021)
  • Treasurer-Elect (2-year commitment: Treasurer-Elect in 2019, Treasurer in 2020)
  • Secretary (2-year commitment: January 1, 2019 – December 31, 2020)
  • Two At-Large Board Members (2-year commitment: January 1, 2019 – December 31, 2020)
  • Regional Leaders’ Committee (“RLC”) Chair (1-year commitment: January 1, 2019 – December 31, 2019)

Next Steps

  1. Review the Eligibility Criteria
    • As Board service takes time and dedication, and provides many benefits in return, I also encourage you to read this article when considering your decision to serve

  2. If you satisfy the criteria, then complete the International Board of Directors Expression of Interest Form (login required to view) by 12:00 p.m. CT on Friday, May 25
  3. The Nominating Committee will verify eligibility, interview candidates and references, and put forth a slate for ratification by the membership in early September 2018
  4. The new board members will begin preparing for their service in October for a January 1, 2019 official start date

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.

Regional Nominating Process

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 2018, so please look for more correspondence on that subject then.

If you have questions, please see the FAQ document or contact me, Executive Director Betsi Roach or another member of the Nominating Committee.

Thank you for your consideration.
