2014 ZRA Call for Volunteers for Committee Chairmen and Vice-ChairmenSeptember 18, 2014
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. Committee involvement is a fantastic way for any member, especially new members, 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 2014 Leadership Development Program open to all ZRA members.
To participate, please select the 2014 Leadership Development Program, when you register for the Annual Conference. The event is offered on Wednesday, 1 October 2014. 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. The 2014 Leadership Development Program will be used to help members gain an understanding of what is necessary for ZRA to be able to move forward and to launch the Strategic Plan.
We are currently recruiting for Chairmen and Vice-Chairmen positions for Committees for the 2014-2016 terms. We are also recruiting for Vice-Chairman for the Ethics and Bylaws Committees and for the Chairman and Member for Nominations and Elections Committee, these are Board-appointed committees.
