Nomination, Application and Election Process
Members interested in serving in a leadership position on the Board are encouraged to review the position descriptions for Presidential Track, At-Large Director, and Annual Director.
How to Get Involved
The Nominations & Appointments Committee recruits nominees, reviews applications and supporting materials, and determines the slate of candidates for the At-Large Director and Presidential Track positions on the NIRSA Board of Directors.
Candidates interested in serving in a Board position, are asked to submit an initial application, consisting of a resume and letter of application by September 26, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org. The committee will then invite finalists to submit the full Board of Directors application package by November 7, 2017. The full application materials include a brief bio, answers to specific leadership questions, three references, a photo and signed institutional support form.
The final slate of candidates will be approved by the current NIRSA Board and announced in mid-December 2016. Electronic elections will occur between January 17-29, 2018 with results announced shortly thereafter.
If you have questions about the position description or election process, please feel free to contact the current Nominations & Appointments Committee Chair Ken Morton, or any Nominations & Appointments Committee member.
If you have questions about the application and supporting materials, please contact Mary Callender at NIRSA Headquarters.
