Important VRPS Leadership Opportunities Available
The Virginia Recreation and Park Society Nominations and Elections Committee is soliciting suggestions/nominations of individual members to be considered for the elections slate for three professional positions on the 2022-2024 Board of Directors. The committee is also encouraging individuals interested in being considered for the slate to submit their names and qualifications for consideration. These opportunities consist of a three-year commitment to serve on the VRPS Board of Directors.
It must be understood that just because someone is recommended or self-recommends does not automatically mean they will be chosen by the Nominations and Elections Committee to be on the ballot. It is also important for all prospective Board members to understand that their term is for three years and that they potentially could be nominated by another Board member and subsequently elected by the Board to serve as the VRPS President anytime during their three-year term.
All candidates who are recommended for consideration or individuals wishing to be considered for the slate are required to submit a resume listing their qualifications, and a brief narrative (no more than 100 words) summarizing what they can provide to the Board, specific goals they may have, their specific involvement in VRPS, and the vision they have for the future for the Society. The narratives submitted for consideration will be used on the ballot for the selected candidates. All of this information is required to be received at firstname.lastname@example.org
by April 16, 2021. To learn more about the duties and responsibilities of the Board of Directors, individuals are encouraged to review the Bylaws and/or Manual of Procedures on the Society’s website (www.vrps.com
