Board Nomination Process
The Nominations Committee members released a Call for Board Nominations to the ARCS community at large in February. Self-nominations of interested candidates are submitted via e-mail directly to the Nominations Committee Chair.
Complete, submitted candidacy materials of eligible candidates were organized and reviewed and spot-checked by the Nominations Committee. Two members of the Nominations Committee were then assigned to interview each prospective candidate. The interview questions, current ARCS Strategic Plan, membership profile information, and a list of the committee Chairs and board Liaisons are shared with each candidate in advance of their interview.
Following the interviews of the candidates, the Nominations Committee members discussed the candidate’s interview responses, and compiled those responses in a central document. Following this discussion, the Nominations Committee then submitted a summary report to the ARCS Board of Directors with their recommendations for candidates.
Finally, the Board unanimously voted for the final slate of nominees to be put forward to the general membership for a vote.
