Sept 16 - Application Finalizing & Rankings

The meeting focused on the weighting of attributes to be evaluated during the candidate ranking process. Wayne listed the attributes perviously looked at by the NomCom. The importance of each attribute was discussed and clarified. Previously, the Board and NomCom had been asked to weigh the attributes. The high and low scores will be removed, and no one attribute will weigh more than 30% to find a usable weighting system. It was decided that "Fit" would no longer be a criteria.

Wayne will go to the Board for clarification of the Bylaws in relation to the NomCom vetting process.

Aug 30 - First Meeting of the NomCom

In the first meeting of the newly formed NomCom, the top priority was to work on the Board of Directors application and questions prior to the 10/2 deadline. Suggestions were made to include detailed information on why an application would be disqualified, include informaiton suggesting a candidate's employer understand and agree to the time/travel commitments, and add space for candidates to include their published books and professional writings and a place to list both speaker and volunteer experiences, since both may be rated.

The elections process was discussed, including recommendations from the ERC. There was a discussion about the requirement of more than speaking experience. A candidate must have PASS volunteer experience beyond speaking for serveral reason:

  • Past volunteer experience is training for future increased responsibilities
  • Past volunteer experience indicates your commitment to the organization
  • Past volunteer experience allows the community to get insightful information about the applicant's performance and ability to motivate, complete tasks on time, and work well with other volunteers
