RESNA 2021 Call for Nominations is Open
All RESNA members are invited to consider a great opportunity for professional growth and service. We are seeking nominations for three members of the Board of Directors. The Governance Committee will accept nominations for 30 days from the date of this announcement (January 15, 2021). The deadline for submitting nominations is February 15, 2021.
Board Members (Three Positions)
Term (3 years): 08/01/2021 to 07/31/2024
Requirements: The primary requirement for serving as a member or officer of the Board of Directors is that the candidate must be a RESNA member in good standing for a period of three years immediately preceding their nomination.
While it is preferred that a Board candidate have a history of participation in and contribution to RESNA organizational activities (e.g., SIGs, PSGs, Committees, Boards, and task forces), including having served in some leadership capacities, it is not required. There may be instances where candidates without extensive organizational experience are in a position to make an important contribution as a Board Member due to their particular background, skills, or contributions to the field or to other organizations.
If you seek to develop your professional skills further, this may be just the opportunity for which you have been looking. Serving as a RESNA Board member will help you develop leadership skills, learn more about organizational work, benefit RESNA’s members, and serve other professionals in the assistive technology and rehabilitation engineering field. This includes the individuals RESNA serves. Please consider nominating yourself, or a colleague who you feel would serve our organization well.
The Governance Committee will review nominations and develop a proposed slate of candidates. They will forward this to the Board of Directors for consideration in its Spring meeting. After approval by the Board of Directors, we will announce the slate and make the online election system available to the membership.
