On October 18, 2010, the National Coalition of Independent Scholars (NCIS) will be holding elections for officers and Board members. Elections are open to current NCIS members only. To join, please visit www.ncis.org. The following officer positions are open:
There are also six seats on the Board that need to be filled by election.
Serving on the NCIS Board not only offers you an opportunity to help direct the future of our organization, but is also excellent experience in working with a non-profit that is valued and sought by employers in almost every field. Having NCIS Board service on your cv or resume can be a great boost in landing a position anywhere.
Officer roles generally require 2-3 hours of work per week, communicating with members and affiliates, serving on at least one committee, and working with the chairs of other committees to undertake projects like setting up receptions at conferences, gaining affiliate status with other organizations, and similar activities. Board members will chair or serve on at least one committee; this usually entails about 5 hours of work per month. All officers and Board members should have access to and be comfortable using email.
All members of NCIS are encouraged to consider running for an officer position or a seat on the Board. If you have just a little time and want to help our great organization, please run!
To submit your name for the ballot, please send your name, the position you are running for, and a brief bio to Janet Wasserman by no later that September 15, 2010. The bio submissions should be in Word, 12 point Arial, sent to Janet at Mae08ben02x@aol.com. E-mails should have as subject line "NCIS Election" so she knows it isn't spam. Bios should be 250 words maximum with the understanding that some minor editing by Janet may be needed for formatting on the ballot.
We will post candidate info on the NCIS web site no later than September 15, 2010. Balloting for the election will be conducted by a third-party professional balloting service.
If you have any questions about serving or running, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
