Second Call for Nominations for ZRA Board of Directors 2018May 02, 2018
Dear ZRA Members:
There are many wonderful ZRA members who would make great leaders in ZRA, however, we have only heard from just a few of you. The nomination period is open through Monday May 7, 2018. There is still time to get in your nomination!
You can nominate yourself or another eligible member (with their consent) for one of the vacant leadership positions for the 2018-2019/2020 Board of Directors. These vacancies are:
● Vice-President (will serve 2018-2019)
Our current Vice President will assume the role of “Acting President” at the close of the annual business meeting in fall 2018, creating this vacancy. Per the Bylaws, there will not be an election for this position; the Board will appoint a member from among the nominees. This member may then run in the next election cycle for this position.
● Director (will serve 2018-2020)
Board liaison for Bylaws, Ethics, Nominations and Elections, and History. There will be an election for this position between all eligible nominees.
ZRA Leadership and Committee Position Descriptions can be found here: ZRA Leadership & Committee Descriptions
While it may seem daunting 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 Director Succession Plan and VP Succession Plan to see that they are there to help.
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. ZRA members should use the qualification documents and eligibility list available through the online nomination form on the ZRA website found here: Elections. The eligibility list will be available as a pull down menu, and reflects those members who currently meet the requirements to hold positions (as indicated in the bylaws Article V, Section 3). No more than three candidates per open position will be included on the final ballot.
Thank you for considering nominations for these positions,
Nominations and Elections Committee
The Nomination Period is open April 9-May 7, 2018
