Nominations for the BZC Board

Every year the sangha elects three of six members-at-large to terms of two years to the BZC Board. There is a two-term limit. Elections take place in October and the new term starts in January 2018. The Board will present its three nominees at the all-sangha meeting on Tuesday evening, September 12. Other nominations can be made by sangha members at that time from the floor. Two current members-at-large who are currently serving their first term, Katy Guimond and Mary Beth Lamb, have agreed to be Board nominees for a second term. Laurie Senauke, another current member-at-large, has been appointed by the Board and Sojun to be the BZC treasurer, so her seat is open. The Board will thus be considering whom to nominate to fill the one vacant member-at-large position. We would like to receive suggestions from BZC members. Among the skills which a nominee might add to the Board are: oral and written communication, organization, information technology, money management, fundraising, engineering, building maintenance, and non-profit law. Board members attend monthly Sunday morning meetings and an all-day retreat in January, and they serve on at least one working Board committee: finance, buildings, development, electronic communication, and recruitment/nomination for elections. If you have a suggested candidate or are yourself interested in being nominated, please contact the Broad Recruitment and Elections Committee chair, Stan Dewey, at by July 12. Please include any relevant information about why you think the person you mention would be a good BZC Board member.
