Nominations Committee

The Nominating Committee consists of members of the council who will assist the council in the recruitment of future leadership for the organization.   The committee should strive to nominate candidates who work at different grade levels and in different settings (e.g., K-12 public and private schools, cultural education institutions, colleges and universities), and who come from various areas of the state.   The committee will meet annually to discuss and vet candidates to present to the current Board of Directors for an election by members.
