2018 NED Board of Directors / Officers - NOMINATIONS
2017 District Nominating Committee Request
DONE! New officers for 2018 elected Friday, October 27, 2017! See HERE. Thank you!
Your participation, response encouraged - please!
Deadline for submissions is MONDAY, MAY 1, 2017.
Each year the district’s nominating committee is charged by the District President, in accordance with the district by-laws and operating code, to find the best possible candidates for District service on the Board of Directors.
At a minimum the committee is to contact each chapter within the Northeastern District as well as the current officers of the District to solicit their suggestions and recommendations for potential officer candidates. The 2017 Nominating Committee has decided to again increase that contact to include all past district presidents and, by general broadcast, every member of the district.
Nothing will have a greater impact on the future and operation of the District than the selection of the men who will be chosen by the House of Delegates to lead our district into that future starting in 2018. It is with an earnest desire to provide the best possible leadership to the NED that we have embarked on the process this year.
As stated in the by-laws and operating code, every position on the District Board (with the exception of Immediate Past President) is open for election each year. Every elected position is for single year terms. Therefore, we are asking each member of the Northeastern District to consider any suggestions you may have for any one or more of the positions on the Board.
We are positive that there are many men within the District boundaries who would provide skill sets and enthusiasm in carrying out the duties of each of these positions. In many cases, they only need to be asked and in many cases they have served or are currently serving. The Committee will be talking to each incumbent member of the Board to determine which of them is interested in continuing service. Those interested will be considered equally with any other possible candidates who may be presented to us from any of these other sources.
It is not necessary that you speak with and obtain permission from any district member before you provide us with their names. All we ask is that you provide us with some very basic information about the person and why you feel he would do an excellent job in a particular position. We will follow up with every single person suggested to the Committee.
To assist you, we have posted BELOW the duties, responsibilities and experience requirements for each position. Remember, for a person to be recommended by you for a specific position, he does not necessarily have had to hold a similar position within his chapter. Many times the professional experience of a person is more significant than his experience within a barbershop chapter.
Please respond with your recommendations to the entire committee via confidential mailbox:
Please provide the following information for each person you recommend:
Full name of the person
Chapter of the person (per By-laws 5.02 the person must be an active member in good standing of a chapter within the Northeastern District and cannot be a Frank Thorne member).
Position for which the person is being recommended
- What you know of the person’s experience and background that is applicable to service on the District Board and at that specific position.
- What other attributes does this person possess that would be of benefit to the District and the position?
The following are the positions for which nominations will be presented to the House of Delegates:
- District President
- District Executive Vice-President
- District Secretary
- District Treasurer
- District Vice-President – Education
- District Vice-President – Chorus Director Development
- District Vice-President – Contest and Judging
