To: Local Leagues and All LWV Members in Wisconsin
Bcc: State Board and Nominating Committee
From: Marilyn Boeldt, Chair, 2014-15 Nominating Committee
We need your help! We need new members for the State Board. We are seeking diversity of all types ... geographic, demographic, ethnic... and we need some new faces as well.
Who in your organization is an emerging leader? Who needs a new challenge to stay involved and committed to the League? Help keep the League strong in Wisconsin by nominating yourself or another leader for State Board!
The state Nominating Committee is accepting nominations until February 27 for State League Board of Directors and 2015-16 Nominating Committee. Local Leagues and individual members may nominate someone, and self-nominations are welcome! The State Board is an exciting opportunity to help guide the League at the policy level with staff support.
For your information, the State Board meets six times per year, usually on a Saturday in Madison. In-person attendance is encouraged, but occasional attendance by conference call is also acceptable. Elected directors serve for a two-year term. Reimbursement for your travel expenses is available.
We encourage submissions through our online nomination form:
For your convenience you can also download a nomination form which shows the questions you will need to answer. Again, the deadline is February 27, 2015.
If you have any questions, please direct them to Andrea Kaminski (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the State Office. She will respond or connect you with a member of the Nominating Committee who is available to respond.
Think about it and let us know. Thanks as always for everything you do for the League.
