In 2018, your Chapter will elect its leadership for the following two years. It is crucial for the Chapter that the elected leadership be enthusiastic, energetic and committed to serving our diverse membership. Additionally, serving as a leader within the Chapter may afford opportunities that may not otherwise be available including enhanced networking options and the possibility to represent the Chapter at meetings, conferences and conventions within Virginia, the region or nationally.
Below is the list of offices that will be on the ballot this year together with the duties and responsibilities of each. The Chapter's goal will be to have two or more candidates for each office so that the election affords choices for the membership. While the formal call for nominations will come out later in the Spring, please begin now to consider running for one of the positions. In general, there are four Chapter Board meetings per year with one frequently occurring at the Chapter Conference. These are all-day meetings, usually on a Friday. In late September, the current Board and the incoming Board will have an overnight retreat to update the Chapter Development Plan and to create the Board Work Program for the ensuing years. Other than at the retreat, remote attendance via telephone (and hopefully videoconferencing in the future) is available.
If you have any questions about duties and responsibilities, please call (757-664-4770) or email George M. Homewood, Past President. If your supervisor has questions about the time commitments and expectations of serving on the Board, please have them contact George.
