CACV Board Nominations

Dear CACV members,

We have just returned from an amazing conference. We hope that, if you were able to attend the conference, you learned a lot.

Our next quarterly meeting is on December 10, 2015, at that time, we will vote on new Board members.

We would like to invite the membership to nominate potential board members. Based on the CACV by-laws:

Members may nominate candidates, as long as the candidates are current voting members of CACV, which means they have participated in at least two general membership or Action Team meetings. Candidates must also agree to be nominated, and shall provide a résumé or curriculum vitae to the Nominating Committee outlining previous and current experience serving in leadership positions.

Nominations need to be submitted to the nominating committee by November 12, 2015.

Please submit any nominations to Geri Adler at geri.adler@vdh.virginia.gov no later than November 12, 2015.

The members of the nominating committee are myself, Rita Miller and Robert Noriega.
