1. Why do you want to serve on the Nomination Committee?
I continue to feel a strong desire to serve the NSCA and I can dedicate the time that it will require. Through many years of participating in our organization in various capacities, I have come to understand the needs of the NSCA and the people who are involved. I believe that the best way I can contribute presently is on the Nomination Committee, in order to have a say in selecting Board of Directors candidates for future elections. It would be my honor to serve our members in this way.
2. What is your understanding of the organizational structure of the NSCA?
Through my term on the NSCA Board of Directors, I gained a thorough insight of the structure and functioning of the NSCA as a not-for-profit organization, from our BOD and various volunteer committees to our Executive Director and staff in various departments.
3. One of the roles of the Nomination Committee is to find qualified candidates for Board of Director positions. How would you go about seeking or identifying candidates who would be representative of the diverse population of our membership, and consistent with the NSCA mission statement?
With the return of the Perspective Areas to the BOD only a few years ago, we now have structured representation of our diverse population built into our BOD. Having served on the Nomination Committee during the inaugural year of its current format, I participated in the initial formulation of the BOD candidate selection process and gained a deep appreciation of the requirements for selection to the BOD ballot. The day after the election, I would begin by talking to individuals whom I know to be qualified and whom I also know to have a fire burning for the NSCA, and I would invite them to apply.
