2011 NOMINATING COMMITTEE REPORT
This year the Nominating Committee consisted of the following members:
Mary Lou Roberts
Jo Nussle (alternate)
Sue Marino (alternate)
During the first week of January an email ad was sent to NewfTide to be included in the first quarter 2011 issue notifying the membership of the Nominating Committee's quest for nominees and necessary deadlines. In early February emails were sent to contacts for all the regional clubs soliciting names for the Nominating Committee to consider for the NCA Board. At the end of March, a teleconference was held to discuss potential nominees, this was followed up by numerous email discussions. A final teleconference was held in late June, followed by email discussions and finally, balloting. The top six candidates were then submitted to the Board as our recommended slate of candidates for the 2012 election.
I would like to thank each member and alternate for the time, patience and consideration given to the important task of recommending candidates for Board election.
2010 Annual Report- Cheryl Dondino
The Nominating Committee conducted business via teleconference by unanimous agreement. Following our teleconference discussions, we voted by secret ballot, using double envelopes for privacy in a similar manner to the NCA elections. Completion of the selection of the slate for 2011 is therefore complete.
The following names were ratified :
Matt Cobban, Laura Gallagher, Kathy McIver, Mary L. Price, Pat Randall, and Pam Saunders.
Each of these nominees has been sent a notification, asking them to send a formal biographical sketch to Mary Lou Cuddy, NCA Recording Secretary. Those who were not selected were sent a letter, notifying them that they were not selected and thanking them for their interest. I have included a sample of the notification that was sent to each of the two groups of potential candidates. (Editor’s note: Letters available on request.)
Costs for the Nominating Committee work were limited to the two teleconferences. The postage and stationery costs were donated. Thank you for allowing our committee to be of service to the NCA.
Our committee would like to have a suggestion made by one of our members brought up at the next Board meeting. We are suggesting that candidates submit their bios for the membership to read this September WITH A PHOTO of themselves to aid in recognition of each person. Please schedule this suggestion for the next Board meeting for review and consideration.
