Committee on Nominations Update

The strength of SOCCA is the wealth of talent and energy of its members. One of the ways to serve the Society is through volunteer activities. The SOCCA Nominations Committee annually evaluates nominees and develops an election ballot for available Officer and Director positions. This election cycle we will be electing a Secretary (2-year term) and 3 Board of Directors (3-year term). The Secretary position serves as the entry position for eventual advancement to Society President. Further details about the governance structure of SOCCA are described in our Society Bylaws.

Information about additional opportunities to serve the organization, such as committee involvement, will be shared in future communications. Those interested in elected positions will be asked to submit a letter of interest, photograph, and curriculum vitae in November. Criteria by which volunteer leaders are evaluated are available here: VOLUNTEER LEADERSHIP SELECTION CRITERIA.

If you have questions about any of the opportunities available within SOCCA, please contact SOCCA Society Director Vivian Abalama, IOM, CAE who will ensure you are in touch with the appropriate SOCCA resource.
