Seeking Nominations for NYS GIS Association Board and President-Elect Positions – Deadline Extended to 10/9!
Although we were distanced from one other, remember that the Association has continued to forge ahead. Consider contributing your insights during these unique times by running for the Board of Directors or President-Elect. Never doubt that you have something to offer. Consistent participation and commitment are valued commodities.
The NYS GIS Association is looking for member nominations and candidates for soon to be vacated Board of Directors and President-Elect positions. The Association relies on the committed volunteer efforts and leadership from its membership to be successful and will look to fill two open Board of Directors positions this fall. Directors serve for two years and are eligible to run for a second term if they desire. If you’ve ever wanted to give back now is a great time to contribute as our membership grows. Previous Board Directors are eligible to run again if it has been two years since their last term ended.
Additionally, the Board will be looking for a new President-Elect as the current one transitions into the role of President. The President-Elect serves a three-year term as President-Elect, President, and Past-President with evolving responsibility over that term.
If you think these positions might be right for you and/or have questions, please email the Nominating Committee Chair, Chris Badurek, at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Letters of intent, biographies, resumes, and other relevant materials should also be submitted through the above email. All nominations should be submitted by October 9, 2020.
You must be a member in good standing to run for any of the Board positions so please verify or renew your membership. The membership year runs from July 1 to June 30. Election results will be announced to the NYSGISA Community in late October 2020.
