Region V Rep – Call for candidates

Important Date:  December 4, 2009

Dear Colleague,

You may be aware by now that I will be appointing a new Region V Representative to fulfill the term being vacated by Jonathan Webb. This is not an easy task, for as we all know, Jonathan’s shoes will be hard to fill. If you are interested in being considered for the position of Region V Representative, please send RID Secretary, Kelly Flores, an email letter of interest and your resume by December 4th.

The appointed term will start January 7, 2010 and run through June 2010. There will be a RID Regional Representatives election during the spring of 2010. The appointed Representative will be encouraged to run in the 2010 election to continue his/her board service if (s)he desires.

The RID Board of Directors will vote on the appointment, however, I plan to hold interviews with interested candidates during the week of December 7th and will ask for feedback from the Region V Presidents Council as well. Candidates for appointment will also be invited to attend the December 10th board meeting conference call (6:00 pm – 9:00 pm Eastern) as visitors. Jonathan has offered to be available for questions at any time during the transition.

Please share this information with colleagues you think are qualified and interested in serving on the national board of directors. I would be happy to personally meet via phone with anyone who has additional questions on the responsibilities and commitments, 847-888-0787 home, 866-948-8909 VP, or 224-402-0787 cell. The Regional Representatives’ duties from the RID Bylaws are included at the end of this email.

Jonathan and I are committed to ensuring a smooth transition for the board and for Region V.

Sincerely,

Cheryl Moose CI & CT
