Nominations for the 2014 Board of Directors elections will be accepted through May 31, 2013.
PDA’s Board of Directors adopted a new open nomination process for Board of Director/Executive Committee elections in 2013.
Previously, the nominating committee (comprised of the members of the Executive Committee) nominated PDA members for the elections. Seeking to expand individual member contribution to the Association and empower members, however, the Board is now opening up the nominating process.
Open nominations will also help ensure that the Board and Executive Committee is truly representative of PDA’s increasingly diverse and international membership. This point was stressed by Nominating Committee Chair (and Immediate Past Chair of PDA) Maik Jornitz.
PDA members are encouraged to nominate their colleagues within the Association for the Board elections. Only members in good standing can nominate (that is, their membership is current). The PDA Nominating Committee will consider all nominations, but certain minimum standards will apply for nominees to appear on the final ballot, including:
1) status of membership;
2) level of activity within PDA;
3) volunteer history; and
4) length of membership.
To nominate, send an email to: email@example.com.
