The work to develop a slate of officers and board of directors for presentation at the LDA 2015 Assembly of Delegates in Chicago is underway! The Nominating Committee is looking for candidates with new ideas, energy, leadership and teambuilding skills as prospective leaders for our organization. A commitment to work for the goals of LDA is a requirement for those who will fill those positions. Nomination forms will be distributed soon. Your help is needed to find outstanding candidates and recommend these individuals to the Nominating Committee.
The Board of Directors is the governing body of LDA that enacts policies, adopts plans, monitors programs and services, and sets priorities of the organization. Prospective candidates must be LDA members in good standing. Board responsibilities include attending board meetings, helping to establish the organization’s policies, serving on and/or chairing committees, and working to further the goals of LDA. Board members may be called on to contact legislators to express LDA’s position or to represent LDA in meetings with other stakeholder organizations.
Nominating Committee Chairman, Katie Cyphers, is asking each LDA member to think outside the box and make recommendations to the nominating committee. We welcome all nominations and are anxious to connect with potential candidates. We are looking forward to presenting the Assembly of Delegates with a hardworking, committed slate of officers and board members in Chicago in February 2015! Please email any nominations or suggestions to the Nominating Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
