2021 Board Of Directors Call for Nominations
Share |

Nominate yourself or another worthy member!


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 20-30 hours per month on average. Directors are expected to attend 2-3 in-person meetings, participate in 20-25 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 the next term, there will be 5 openings.


IMPORTANT: Please be aware that itSMF USA policy is 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.


The nomination period will formally begin Friday, September 21, 2020. All nominations must be received on or before Friday, October 5, 2020 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 President Elect and a minimum of 2 other members of the Board of Directors. 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. The Nominations Committee will make every effort to see that their choices for recommendation are guided by geographic diversity and balance.
