The Recruitment Committee was formed upon the recommendation of the Ad Hoc Committee for Qualification for Board Service. The Board of Trustees voted to form the committee at the November 2017 Board Meeting.
The Recruitment Committee was charged with four tasks:
- Create an informational sheet explaining service on the Board of Trustees, including recommended qualifications, responsibilities, and the commitment trustees are asked to make.
- Advertise and recruit potential Board of Trustees couples
- Develop a timeline for recruitment efforts
- Consider developing an information sheet that would be submitted by any couple considering standing for election to the Board of Trustees and circulating it in advance of the Annual Business Meeting (ABM).
At this time, the committee has completed work on both an information sheet regarding Board service and an Application Form for applying to stand for election to the Board of Trustees at the ABM.
The Application Form does not have to be completed by couples wishing to stand for election but it does give couples an opportunity to outline their interests and qualifications, particularly if they are unable to attend the ABM.
The Committee advertised the opportunity to apply in advance to stand for election at the ABM held in Sweden in 2018.
The materials the Committee has compiled consists of the Information Sheet, the Application Form, and the Trustee Responsibilities packet.
In the coming year, we hope to include written and video accounts of Board members regarding their experiences serving on the Board of Trustees here on this page.
In addition, we plan to actively solicit recommendations from the RCA fellowship so that we can do direct outreach to potential Board of Trustees couples. Advertising in the Hand in Hand and E-news will also be explored.
