|2017 Board Of Directors Nomination Form|
The itSMF USA is calling for nominations to serve on its Board of Directors. Individuals are being nominated for the board of directors in general, not for a specific board position. The Board of Directors is a working board and time commitment is estimated to be approximately 20-40 hours per month on average. Directors are expected to attend 2-3 in-person meetings, participate in 25-30 conference calls each year, attend at least 2 LIG meetings, and attend the itSMF USA annual convention, Fusion. This may require up to 15 days of travel.
There is no compensation for service on the Board of Directors; however, travel and itSMF USA business-related expenses are subject to reimbursement.
For 2017, there will be 3 openings.
Please be aware that itSMF USA policy states that not more than two (2) of the Board of Directors may be partners, employees, officers or directors of the same organization, corporation, or affiliates thereof. Further, no more than two (2) of the Board of Directors may represent the same Local Interest Group, or reside within the same geographic area, (defined to be State or within a 150 mile radius) of an established LIG.
All nominations must be received on or before Thursday, July 17, 20156 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time, to be considered in the nomination process.
Any voting member of the itSMF USA in good standing may be placed in nomination for the Board of Directors. The Governance Chair will review all nominations and certify their membership status. The Nomination Committee is made up of the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors and a representative of the Operating Team. The Nominations Committee will review all nominations and make recommendations to the membership. The criteria they will use were developed for the purpose of interviewing each candidate.
