To recommend a colleague or yourself as a board candidate, visit the Call for Board Nominations site and complete the official form. Before submitting a nomination, NEDRA encourages you to discuss with your candidate their interest and ability to potentially serve on the board.

NEDRA board members serve a two-year term beginning in July. The board meets several times per year in person and monthly by phone; in addition, board members attend selected NEDRA programs and the annual conference. The board consists of at least 12 directors who rotate responsibilities to:

  • Perform executive leadership and governance duties
  • Organize programs, boot camps, and the annual conference
  • Produce, edit, and distribute NEDRA News
  • Maintain the NEDRA website
  • Design and author marketing materials
  • Secure sponsors for conference and other programming opportunities
  • Grow and diversify membership
  • Collaborate with management association staff
  • Develop other member services, and manage volunteer committees
  • Investigate and implement social media and other cutting edge tools to engage members throughout all of New England and provide meaningful content through online or other virtual means
  • Be passionate advocates for the profession.

Board nominee criteria includes:

  • Experienced in prospect research, management, analytics, or related industries
  • Active NEDRA membership
  • Prior volunteer involvement with NEDRA (e.g. committee member, contributor to NEDRA News, conference presenter, program or RING host, etc.)
  • Interested in helping others advance in the profession as demonstrated by leadership within the workplace and/or among professionals in the field
  • Other relevant volunteer experience
  • Would contribute to the diversity of perspectives on the board (e.g. geographic/institution type/institution size)

Upon receipt of a nomination, a member of the Nominating Committee will contact the individual to verify her/his interest in serving on the board and to answer any questions. The nominee will be asked to submit a resume and be interviewed by telephone.

Don’t delay: Nomination Forms must be received by Friday, February 12, 2016.
