Call for Nominations
BOARD ELECTION PROCESS
Step 1: Call for nominations.
Step 2: Announcing the slate. MCN announces the slate of finalists and opens a petitioning process in September.
Step 3: Member vote. MCN members are invited to cast an online ballot with one ballot per organization. MCN members will also be able to vote in person at the MCN Annual Conference in St. Paul on November 6-7.
Step 4: Announcing the new board. The new member-representative board members will be announced in January 2015.
The MCN Nominating Committee is currently seeking nominations for individuals to represent their communities and serve on the MCN board of directors. This call for nominations is the start of the selection process for MCN’s 2015 board of directors and we invite you, a leader of an MCN member organization, to nominate yourself or a colleague you think would be strategic for one of six openings. Eligible candidates must be a representative (staff or board member) of a current MCN nonprofit member organization.
This is an annual opportunity for MCN members to nominate leaders in the sector to serve as their representatives to MCN’s board. Please consider nominating yourself or a colleague before Thursday, July 31, 2014.
Nominate Yourself or Someone Else
Serving on MCN's board comes with several requirements, which all applicants must review before submitting an application. Before submitting a nomination, please read the Expectations of Nominees to MCN's Board of Directors. Then, select if you will be nominating yourself or someone else and you will be able to enter the appropriate online submission form.
- Nominate yourself for the MCN board of directors
- Nominate someone else for the MCN board of directors
Please note, those nominees who are not the chief executive of their organization will be asked to also submit a support form signed by the organization's chief executive or board chair, indicating that their organization will give them appropriate time away from work to carry out their board duties.
