KICA is looking for a small group of members to help build and maintain a board that has the talent, skill and diversity to provide effective governance for the community. Building the Nominating Committee is the first step in preparations to replace two board directors when their terms end in March 2019.
Committee work for the 2019 election will begin with the appointment of the committee at the July 2 Board of Directors meeting. Times and dates of meetings will be determined once the committee is established. September and October are anticipated to be the most active months. The deadline to volunteer for the Nominating Committee is Monday, June 25.
The nominating committee will have two main tasks:
Identify, solicit and interview candidates – The committee will work to identify qualified candidates who will consider running for a board seat. If unique skills (i.e. finance, legal, engineering, etc.) or if a segment such as full-time residents or club members are under (or over) represented, the committee will seek candidates with these skills and characteristics. In meeting with potential candidates the committee will explore their skills, experiences and qualifications. It will also develop a sense of candidate’s interpersonal skills and ability to work in the board setting.
Recommend candidates – It is important to have a board whose overall makeup provides necessary skills and experiences and with varied perspectives to provide KICA with highly-functioning governance. The committee will provide its recommendation for candidates it considers the best potential members. Potentially, more candidates will run than there are seats available. In that case, the committee may provide recommendations for all or only some of the candidates.
