As Immediate Past Chair, it is my great honor to chair the AFP Global Nominating Committee. The committee is responsible for determining the slate of board members to present to the association membership for approval.
The Nominating Committee meets this July and will determine a slate for the calendar year 2024 for the following seats:
- Two Officers for the positions of Secretary and Treasurer.
- Three Vice Chair roles for the Membership Services, Professional Development, and External Relations Divisions.
- Five At-large Director roles to serve a two-year term.
Per our Bylaws, the board shall be composed of not less than 12, but not more than 24 members. Elected board terms are two-year terms depending on the position they serve; officer terms are a one-year term. No elected director may serve more than eight years consecutively on the board in any combination of director categories, excluding the chair-elect track. However, individuals may return to the board after a minimum one-year break in service and are not eligible to serve in an officer position that they may have previously held.
I encourage you to consider qualified individuals who have distinguished themselves by advancing our profession and/or our association. You or your chapter may nominate any qualified candidate to serve on the board for a seat as an officer, vice chair or an at-large director. Remember, you may self-nominate, nominate a colleague, or invite your chapter to nominate you or a colleague. Prior to making any nominations, please carefully review the criteria for service. The deadline for submission of completed nominations is June 12, 2023. All nomination forms must be submitted using the nomination JotForm found linked below.
Nominating Process and Job Descriptions
Please be thorough and provide as much information as possible about the candidate. Some candidates may be asked to supply supplementary information to the Committee to ensure thoughtful consideration. Please contact your nominee in advance of submitting the nomination to determine their willingness to serve. Finally, a current brief bio and photo must accompany the completed Nomination Form. Nominees will be contacted after the nomination deadline for a Zoom or phone interview with a member of the Nominating Committee.
The Nominating Committee has identified several desired attributes that will be part of the selection process for new board members as follows:
- Leadership ability and experience which demonstrates the skills needed to govern a professional association.
- Dedication and service to the social sector.
- No less than two (2) years of volunteer service to AFP, philanthropy and/or the community locally, nationally and/or internationally.
- Those who self-identify as members of diverse communities are strongly encouraged to apply.
If you have any problems filling out the form, please contact Sam Edwards at email@example.com.
Thank you in advance for taking an active role in this year’s nomination process and for encouraging your chapter to do the same. Should you have any questions whatsoever about the process, please don’t hesitate to contact me or staff. We look forward to hearing from you—and we hope you will use this opportunity to make your voice heard.
