Region C Nomination Committee: Volunteers Needed
We still need volunteers to participate on the Region Nominating Committee. The only required qualification is that you are a Society member in good standing. All Professional Sections/MALs/Reps must provide a member for the committee and the collegiate sections will collectively provide two or three members to represent collegiate interests on the committee. The time commitment is between five and 10 hours over the next 2-3 months, depending on how many candidates will be vetted. If a quorum does not exist from volunteers by Monday, January 11th, all Professional section Presidents will be required to serve the nominating committee. Please contact Carrie Ballester, Region Nominating Committee Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
