National VOAD is currently accepting nominations for the National VOAD Board of Directors. If you wish to nominate yourself or another individual, please fill out the National or State Nomination Form provided below. All nominations must include two letters of recommendation from National VOAD members, as well as the resume of the nominee. If you are nominating yourself for the position, please include a bio statement (500 words max).
This year there are two positions for Tier 1 agencies, one position for Tier 2 agencies, and one position for a State VOAD representative. All nominations must be submitted by April 1st, 2019.
Please note the following regarding the National VOAD Board of Directors:
National candidates must be the official Member Representative from a National VOAD member organization.
State candidates must be a current officer or immediate past officer to be nominated.
National Member representatives are not reimbursed for Board-related travel and expenses. The member organization with which they are affiliated must be able to make the financial commitment to provide funding for travel, including to Board Meetings and the Annual VOAD Conference.
Board Members have full voice and vote in all deliberations of that body.
Board Members serve the concerns of all member agencies, not just their organization.
Becoming a Board Member requires a substantial time commitment, which is in addition to commitments already made to their voluntary organization.
When all nominations have been received, the Nominating Committee will review the information and establish the slate of candidates to be voted on by the National and State Member Representatives at the National VOAD Conference in May.
Serving National VOAD is an amazing opportunity, privilege, and an honor that we all take very seriously. Thank you for considering candidates that will further guide the exemplary work of National VOAD. We look forward to receiving your nominations and any questions you might have.
