Nominate WCA’s Next President
The Women’s Caucus for Art is now accepting nominations for the next President Elect. The deadline for submission is Friday, May 10, 2013. WCA’s Presidential Election is the one of the most important events our members participate in. Unlike other organizations, the WCA President is nominated and elected through the membership, not the Board of Directors. We encourage all of our members to consider and put forward strong candidates for the next leader of the Women’s Caucus for Art.
The President Elect serves a six-year term on the Board. The term begins with President Elect (2014-16), then President (2016-18), and finally Past President (2018-20). We are looking for nominees with outstanding leadership qualities, administrative experience and national or local board experience.
Members may nominate other members, but you may also want to nominate yourself. To view the job qualifications, go to http://www.nationalwca.org/aboutwca/aboutwca.php, and click on Presidential Election on the left menu bar. Nominees should make sure they have read the procedures, qualifications and requirements and are prepared to carry out the duties.
Candidates should forward the following by Friday, May 10 to firstname.lastname@example.org (all information must be in Word.doc format) :
1. One or two letters of nomination from WCA members
2. The nominee’s resume
3. Short biography of the nominee
4. A brief statement addressing why the nominee wants to be President, what skills she will bring, her leadership style, and her vision for WCA
5. One or two letters of recommendation
The Nominations Committee will vet all nominees and will put forward one or two candidates to the WCA membership in the fall. Voting will take place in the fall and the result will be announced by December 1.
