Nominating Committee Seeks Candidates for Society-Level Positions in 2002
Would you like to help STC remain a vital organization? You--and other members whom you know and respect--can perform this important function. How? By being a candidate for Society-level positions in 2002.
Ask yourself these questions: Are you good at listening to and implementing ideas? Do you think you can help direct and administer Society-level activities? Would you like to represent our membership on ceremonial occasions? Could you help coordinate an array of programs beneficial to our profession? If your answers are "yes," then tell our STC nominating committee that you would be interested in running for office. If you know another member who should be considered a candidate for a position on our international board, please add that person's name, too.
A healthy board needs a combination of seasoned Society leaders and new senior members (those with at least five years of STC membership) with fresh perspectives. So whether you're a veteran member or a new senior member, consider stepping forward.
The nominating committee will consider all recommendations as we draw up the 2002 slate. Part of the committee's process involves contacting potential candidates to confirm that they are interested in running for STC office.
The members of this year's nominating committee are Ernest D. Mazzatenta (manager), Carolina Foothills chapter; Clark E. Beck, Southwestern Ohio chapter; John V. Hedtke, Puget Sound chapter; M. Gwaltney Mountford, East Bay chapter; and Deirdre A. Murr, San Fernando Valley chapter. Please feel free to discuss your ideas with any of these people.
Open Positions and Qualifications:
All candidates must be senior members. Candidates for second vice president must have extensive leadership experience, preferably in positions at the Society level. Candidates for secretary must be familiar with preparing minutes, conducting official correspondence, and maintaining records.
