Role of Committee

The purpose of the Nominating Committee is simple but vital to a well functioning organization. The primary duty of the Nominating Committee is to lead the recruitment process for suitable candidates for the Board of Directors (the Board). Candidates are then voted onto the Board by the membership at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).

 The Nominating Committee consists of three members, nominated and elected by the membership at the AGM. Each member’s term is for three years.

One of the best things about working on the Nominating Committee is that you meet, through email and phone calls, many teachers you wouldn't otherwise have occasion to meet -- teachers who may live many states away, but with whom you share a commitment to your profession and professional organization.

We are pleased to announce that Aida McGugan has joined the Nominating Committee.  An interest in Classical Dressage and a desire to improve her balance and coordination when riding initially brought Aida to lessons in 1992. A former software developer and development manager for 24 years, Aida is well acquainted with the demands on busy professionals.

Marisa De Silva has also joined the Nominating Committee. She is a recent graduate of Rose Bronec's training course and we applaud her for jumping into service to AMSAT with enthusiasm. She will be connecting with recent graduates to not only make them feel welcome but share her experience with them and create a database of people willing to serve our non-profit organization now or later.  Welcome Marisa!
