The call for nominations is now open for Florida Trail Association’s (FTA) 2019 Board of Directors, and we are seeking candidates for at-large Board Member positions.
FTA has a 15-member Board. Nominations may be submitted for President, Vice-President (VP) Development and Outreach, VP Membership, VP Governance, VP Trails, Secretary, and three at-large board members. Terms for officers is two years, and at-large positions is three years, beginning after the annual meeting on April 6, 2019.
The Nominating Committee will select the ballot based on nominations received. A ballot of officers and at-large Board members for 2019 will be voted upon via electronic voting beginning sometime early 2019. In addition to this, we will include a mail-in voting option in the Winter Footprint. The elections will be announced at the April 2019 Annual Meeting.
Serving on FTA’s Board of Directors is a rare chance to help the organization face challenges, provide creative solutions, contribute to a fast-growing trail program, and affect long-term positive change. Board service also offers you the opportunity to grow personally and professionally, to develop valuable skills in non-profit governance, gain unique experience and make lasting connections with a team of other passionate and motivated professionals.
