Second Call for Nominations ZRA Board of Directors 2017-2019April 20, 2017 PLEASE LEAD ZRA!
We know there are lots of wonderful ZRA members who would make great leaders in ZRA. However, we haven’t heard from you yet. Where are you?
We are all committed to this association but we can only move forward with leadership. Please consider nominating yourself or another eligible member (with their consent) for one of these vacant leadership positions for the 2017-2019 Board of Directors. The vacancies are:
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬â€Ã‚Â Director (Board liaison for Membership Services, Annual Conference, External Relations, Marketing and Public Relations)
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬â€Ã‚Â Director (Board liaison for Training, Standards, Professional Development)
ZRA Leadership and Committee Position Descriptions can be found here: http://www.zooregistrars.org/governance.php
Starting next week, the Nominations and Elections Committee will be in touch to recruit for these vacancies! Please submit your nominations.
While it may be intimidating to serve in one of these positions, you have the support of the current Board (including those rotating off) and the entire Association. Please take a look at the Succession Plans that have been developed (http://www.zooregistrars.org/resources.php) to see that you won’t be left lost and alone in the cold – you will have lots of help! We need leaders to keep the passion flowing in the great world of zoo and aquarium record keeping. That leader is YOU!
You can nominate up to two qualified candidates for each vacancy – including yourself. Please make sure that your nominee has agreed to being nominated; no one will be added to the ballot without her/his consent. We want leaders who are dedicated to leading this rowdy group of zoo and aquarium professionals. ZRA members should use the qualification documents and eligibility list available through the online nomination form on the ZRA website found here: http://www.zooregistrars.org/member.php. The eligibility list will be available as a pull down menu, and reflects those members who currently meet the requirements to lead us (as indicated in the bylaws Article V, Section 3). No more than three candidates per open position will be included on the final ballot.
The Nomination Period will be open April 7-May 1, 2017.
