2012 Call for Nominations

AHRD Call for Nominations Extended due to Sandy's Impact!

The Academy of Human Resource Development (AHRD) Board of Directors, guided by the leadership of the President, enacts the vision and directs the activities of the Academy. This year, the AHRD members will nominate and elect three new Board members. We need your help to find the best candidates for these important positions – people who will lead our ever-growing and ever-changing Academy with vitality and vision.

Due to the impact of hurricane Sandy, the deadline for nominations has been extended.

Board Member Nominations:

Any member of the AHRD, including former Board members, is eligible to be nominated to serve on the Board. Self-nominations are also accepted. AHRD has a strong commitment to diversity in its general membership and to the diversity of the membership of its Board.

Those considering having their names placed in nomination should consider their time commitment for Board assignments. Each member of the Board is given at least two assignments, which include serving on a Board committee and as Board liaison to an Academy committee. Board members are elected for a three-year term, with members elected this year serving February 2013-February 2016. Board members are expected to participate in two face-to-face Board meetings each year of the three-year term, with each meeting lasting 10-12 hours over one-and-a-half days. One meeting is held during the AHRD International Conference in the Americas and the second meeting is generally scheduled in the fall at a centralized location in the United States. Board members cover their own expenses for attendance at the face-to-face Board meetings.

Nomination Procedure:

Nominations will close on Tuesday, 13 November 2012.

All nominations must adhere to following election guidelines:

Whether nominating yourself or someone else, all nominations must provide a written statement that includes the nominee's biographical information, vision for the Academy, and ways the nominee will contribute as a Board member. Each nomination statement is restricted to a total of 250 words, including the biographical information, vision, and contribution as Board member. Any statement exceeding 250 words will have the excess words dropped from the end of the statement. These final statements of the slate of nominees will be communicated to the AHRD membership.
