Obtaining a board position
Interested parties can apply to be part of the board by submitting a resume or CV and a brief cover letter explaining why they would be an asset to the board. The board recognizes that member service is a voluntary commitment and coordinating time for board member interviews may be cumbersome. Resumes and cover letters are reviewed, and the board discusses potential board candidates via email. When the board reaches an agreement on adding a member that member will be invited to the next board meeting. Interested members can email their cover letter and resume/CV to Ronda@AlphaEmergence.org or to the board member who invited them to apply.
