Nominating Committee

NORDP’s Nominating Committee (NomCom) facilitates the annual Board of Directors nomination, application, and election processes. NomCom maintains the organization’s election procedures and promotes board applicant and election information among the membership. Among other duties, this involves issuing a call for board nominations and applications each spring, determining if nominees and applicants meet eligibility criteria, and working with an election provider to distribute the Board of Directors candidate ballot.

The committee includes six members from across NORDP’s regions. The group receives support and guidance from up to two board liaisons. NomCom works mostly in the spring leading up to the annual meeting, communicating primarily via email and through a handful of conference calls. Service on NomCom provides a NORDP volunteer opportunity that requires a reasonable time commitment. Committee volunteers benefit from networking and teamwork—as well as learning more about NORDP’s mission and the characteristics valuable among its leaders.

If you would like to learn more about or volunteer to serve on NomCom, please send a message to [email protected].
