NE-DS is announcing the official formation of the nomination committee for the election of a member to the service board taking place during the March 9, 2018 class and members meeting.
NE-DS yearly elects a member to participate for a two year term in the governance and leadership of the organization. This includes voting on items such as the board of directors of the organization, committee members, and other pressing matters of the organization.
We are looking for more than just one candidate, especially in light of the fact that the by-laws provide the option for the runner ups to fill the position for the rest of the 2 year term if the initial candidate needs to step down for some reason.
With this in mind the nominating committee is seeking multiple candidates to step forward, willing to help in the leadership and guidance of the future of NE-DS. Please contact either Jakan or BaldwinMass before January 16th to be considered for being added to this years ballot. We ask that you also include a short “stump speech” that will go along with your name on the ballot announcement and on the proxy ballots.
Additionally NE-DS is looking for other volunteers to help both support or in some cases lead committees, possibly allowing us to expand the organization to help more people or cover more areas of the region.
