Call for AHRD Board Nominations – Due October 24, 2014
The AHRD Board of Directors, guided by the leadership of the President, enacts the vision and directs the activities of the Academy of Human Resource Development (AHRD). This year, AHRD members will nominate and elect three 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.
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 and are expected to attend the Board meetings during the annual conferences in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 and one additional Board meeting each year of the three-year term, which are scheduled in the fall and at various locations. Board members are expected to cover their own expenses for attendance at scheduled Board meetings.
All nominees must adhere to following election guidelines.
Nominations for Board members should be sent to Darlene Russ-Eft by October 24, 2014. Nominations will close on October 24, 2014. Whether you nominate yourself or someone else, all nominees must provide a written statement that includes both their biographical information and vision for the Academy, including how they would like to contribute in their role as a Board member. You are restricted to a total of 250 words for your statement, which includes both your biographical information and vision. If the statement exceeds this word restriction, sentences will simply be dropped from the end of the statement to fit the space limitation.
Please note that the use of flyers or the AHRD listserv for the promotion of candidates is prohibited.
Please send nominations and nominee statements to Darlene Russ-Eft, Chair, AHRD Nominating Committee, via email firstname.lastname@example.org. A reply email confirmation will be sent to you indicating that your nomination has been received. If you do not receive this confirmation within 48 hours, please re-send and/or contact email@example.com.
All AHRD members will receive instruction for completing their ballot, which will be found at the AHRD website in November. The AHRD election process will be completed by December 12, 2014 and new Board members will be introduced to the Academy at the AHRD International Research Conference in the Americas February 18-22, 2015.
