The Nominating Committee reported on its work to date in preparation for the 2017 board of trustees election. The committee met in August and selected Janet Hietter to serve as chair. Sandy Voit is the board’s representative for the committee. The committee reviewed and approved candidate application materials, as well as the nominating process timeline. The committee also completed interviews of current trustees and management for feedback. The trustee application deadline for the 2017 election is December 2, 2016. Interviews will take place in mid-December.
The board heard a brief report from the Board Development Committee. The committee discussed the ideal top skills and experience for trustee candidates and will be working in collaboration with the Nominating Committee on ways to enhance the candidate interview and election process. The committee will also be assessing training, education and onboarding for new trustees.
