Dear ABC members,
The Nominating Committee invites you to nominate candidates for four director-at-large seats on the Association’s Board of Directors and for the three special Association awards specified in the bylaws. Please submit your nominations to me by Monday, September 26. Board members and committee chairs are especially encouraged to submit nominations.
Additionally, Eastern Region members are invited to nominate candidates for their Eastern Regional Vice President (to assume this role in October 2017).
Nominees for At-Large Board Seats
Any ABC member may run for an at-large Board seat, and self-nominations are welcome. From the pool of nominated candidates, the Nominating Committee will generate a slate of nominees. We are seeking at least two nominees for each seat. The election will be held this coming spring (2017), with the winners taking office at the close of the 2017 annual conference.
At-large Board members, like the other Board members, serve four-year terms, and they can run for re-election. Their primary role is to help shape the future of the Association by attending the annual Board meeting and participating in whatever other business comes up during the year. The full description of the Board members’ duties is here:
Nominees for Association Awards
The Nominating Committee also seeks nominations for the following special awards, which are announced during the Presidential Awards Dinner at the annual conference:
--Bernadine P. Branchaw Spirit of ABC Award (see http://www.businesscommunication.org/page/branchaw)
--Distinguished Member Award (see http://www.businesscommunication.org/page/distinguished-member)
--Francis W. Weeks Award of Merit (see http://www.businesscommunication.org/page/weeks)
With each nomination, please include a short summary of the candidate’s qualifications and, if possible, a link to his/her CV on the Web.
Many thanks for your help with this important task.
Chair, ABC Nominating Committee
