It is with mixed feelings that I announce the resignation of two of our Board Members.
Mary Ellen Shimell, our Production Director will be moving away and has resigned her seat effective immediately. Jennifer Barton, our Treasurer is going back to school and will resign her seat effective February 1, 2015. As a friend, I am excited for the opportunities each is moving on to in their lives. As a President, their hard work and dedication will be sorely missed and I am sorry to see them leave.
As such, the Board of Directors is putting out a call for anyone interested in sitting on the Board. While this is unusual, there is precedence for how to approach vacant positions on the Board and we will be using the following procedure.
1) If you are interested in either the Production Director or Treasurer positions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31, 2014.
a. You cannot nominate someone else – these must be self-nominations. If you would like to encourage someone to run, I highly recommend you do so, and ask them to submit their name.
b. Information on both positions can be found on our website in our governance documents.
2) On January 2nd, 2015, a list of nominees will be emailed to the membership. If there is only one name for each position, these individuals will automatically become members of the Board in their respective positions.
3) If there are more than one individuals nominated for each position, a survey will accompany the names for members to vote anonymously and electronically for their preferred candidates. Votes will be due January 16, 2015 at 5:00pm. Following the electronic vote, the successful candidates will be declared and will become members of the Board of Directors.
If you have any concern with the process or have questions about either of the positions or sitting on the Board of Directors, please contact the President of the Society, Caitlin Schulz directly via email (email@example.com) or by phone (587-879-0940).
