Every October the sangha elects three of six members-at-large to the BZC Board for two-year terms. There is a two-term limit. The next new term starts in January 2019. The Board will present its three nominees at the all-sangha membership meeting on Tuesday evening, September 25. Other nominations can be made from the floor.
Two current members-at-large, Mark Copithorne and Stan Dewey, are serving their second terms and will be leaving the Board at the end of this year, so these seats will be open. Jed Appelman has agreed to be a Board nominee for a second term. The Board will thus be considering whom to nominate to fill the two vacant member-at-large positions. We would like to receive suggestions from BZC members.
Among the skills that a nominee might add to the Board are: oral and written communication, organization, information technology, money management, fundraising, building maintenance and nonprofit law. Board members attend monthly morning meetings and an all-day retreat in February, and they serve on at least one working Board committee: finance, buildings, development, electronic communication, and nomination-elections.
If you have a suggested candidate for the Board or are yourself interested in being nominated, please contact the Board Nominations and Elections Committee chair, Stan Dewey, at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 9. Please include any relevant information about why you think the person you mention would be a good BZC Board member.
