ZRA Announcement for Volunteers for Committee Chairmen and Vice ChairmenAugust 01, 2011 Dear ZRA members:
The Board of Directors submits to the membership, the annual Call for Volunteers for committee Chairmen and Vice-Chairmen. In the Bylaws, we set-up terms for Leadership positions in order to allow for a rotation of members into these positions to keep perspectives fresh and allow for all members interested in serving to have opportunities to do so. We are currently recruiting for Chairmen and Vice-Chairmen positions for the 2011-2013 terms. We are also recruiting for two Committee Member vacancies for the Board appointed Ethics and the Nominations and Elections committees. Committee involvement is a fantastic way for any member, especially new ones, to learn more about ZRA and to meet other members. The Board of Directors is committed to offering opportunities for all members, and has demonstrated this by making the 2011 Leadership Development Program open to all ZRA members.
To participate, please select the 2011 Leadership Development Program, when you register for the Annual Conference. The event is offered on Wednesday, 5 October 2011. The Board of Directors is optimistic that the Leadership Development Program will continue to help members attain valuable skills and competencies that will assist them in their jobs and their lives in general.
