REPRESENTATIVE TO THE SOCIETY NOMINATING COMMITTEE

Posted on Updated on

Please note:  This is the Committee at the Society level, not Region level

The Region D Representative to the Nominating Committee has stepped down before the end of the term. This leaves an opportunity to join the Nominating Committee for a shortened term, to complete June 30, 2019.

​The nominating committee member must be a voting member of the Society. “In order to be eligible to serve on the nominating committee, a member must have had recent experience on a Society level.”
The member will have an interest in shaping the future of SWE and possesses knowledge of SWE bylaws, procedures and the Strategic Plan, as well as, the SWE Leadership Competency Model.
The role typically requires time dedicated for 1-2 phone calls per month, regular work via email and a significant time evaluating candidates and providing feedback to the committee during the months of October-January when phone calls increase to 1-3 calls per week.
Members need to be active on the nominating committee by attending most teleconferences, participating in email discussions, reading appropriate documents, and providing input via email in advance of any meetings that they know they will miss. It is understood that everyone will not make every meeting.
Committee members need to solicit information on the candidate as needed prior to discussions on the slate. It is the member’s responsibility to be able to present unbiased candidate pros and cons, not necessarily to be an advocate for every nominee.
Attendance at the Society annual conference (at your own expense) is strongly encouraged, although not required.
Members should assist by actively engaging with qualified candidates to encourage them to apply for open positions. The nominating committee members need to use discretion because the nature of meetings, discussions and email communications are highly confidential and must not be shared outside of the nominating committee.

While each Region Nominating Committee is responsible for ensuring that qualified candidates are slated for each position, it is the responsibility of all members to identify and bring forth qualified candidates to ensure strong leadership for the future of the organization during this governance transition time.
