Deadline for submission – Friday, April 18th
CALPCC has a 15-member Board of Directors, including six Officers: President, President Elect, Past President, Treasurer, Treasurer-Elect and Secretary. Because the current President-Elect needed to resign from this position in February, we now must elect both a President and a President-Elect. In order to run for either of these offices, a member must have served on the CALPCC Board for at least one year.
The Nominating Committee is seeking candidates for five Director positions. Four positions will be elected by Professional Members and one position will be elected by Students/Intern Members. The following is the 2014 election timeline:
- April 18: Applications for Candidacy are due
- May 21: The Nominating Committee will present a slate to the membership for a vote
- June 4: Ballots are due
In developing the voting slate, the Nominating Committee will take into consideration geographic representation and counseling specialties represented in the membership. The Committee will be looking for the skills and experiences that will enable candidates to take leadership roles with committees or key projects to move CALPCC forward. We are looking for candidates with previous board and committee experience. We are particularly looking for marketing, leadership, organizational, advocacy, legislative, and financial skills.
- Board Directors must maintain California residency during their term of office.
- Board Directors must be CALPCC Members in good standing during their term of office.
- Board Directors hold a graduate degree in counseling or related field. (Given the delays in processing applications with the BBS, Directors will not be required to hold a license until the 2015 election.) The Student/Intern Board Member must be enrolled in a graduate counseling program, or be registered, or be in the application process as a PCC Intern, by October 1, 2014.
- Board candidates must agree to attend regular board meetings (currently two-hour monthly meetings held by conference call on the second Friday of the month from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.) and be timely with Board activities.
- In order to accomplish our work on the board, each Board Member, who is not serving as an Officer, must act as a Committee Chair, Co-Chair, or Manager of a key project each year.
- Candidates must be willing to attend at least one committee meeting per month by conference call.
