District 2 Board Nomination Procedures
Nominating Committee Candidate Information
Would you like to serve on the District 2 Board?
The 2014 International Lodge determined that each District shall elect a Nominating Committee to identify candidates to the District Board and District International Director. Refer to Charter and Constitutions Paragraphs 3.7.7, 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52.
The District 2 Nominating Committee elected for 2016 is Marit Kristiansen, Erlene Stevenson and Ingrid Hueneke.
The Committee’s task is to identify, review and recommend eligible candidates for the office of International Director, District Lodge Officers and Directors. All Candidates must be a Benefit Member. The term for District officer is two years, International Director is four years. Each Candidate shall complete the Candidate Application Form.
The positions up for election at the 2016 District 2 Convention are:
- Vice President
- Social/Publicity Director
- Cultural/Foundation Director
- Youth Director
- Sports Director
- Zone Director – one from each of the 6 Zones
- International Director
- Alternate International Director
If you, or a member you know would be a good candidate, please contact Marit Kristiansen at 907-562-5172, firstname.lastname@example.org.
What are the duties of each office?
Upon request, we will send you a description of the duties for any office.
Each candidate must be willing to attend two Board meetings each year, write a report for the Dynamic 2 Newsletter and expect to spend several hours per month on District issues. Some offices require a greater time commitment i.e. President, Secretary and Treasurer. Officers and Directors receive per diem and mileage/airfare for approved activities.
The Committee is beginning to seek out candidates now because all candidates MUST be elected as a delegate to the 2016 convention. Delegate elections are held in February.
Here are some general attributes for being a Board Member:
- No felony conviction
- Dedicated, disciplined
- Ethical, honest
- Fair & impartial
- Decision maker
- Inquiring mind
The Nominating Committee will not endorse one candidate over another, but rather review the candidates’ credentials and present all eligible candidates to the District Lodge delegates for election.
