AAUW NC is an all-volunteer organization. Its success depends on our finding good candidates who have a passion for advancing equity for women and girls and are looking for an opportunity to

  • step up to a position where their efforts can help AAUW across the state
  • share their expertise and improve their skills
  • get connected to a group of remarkable members who understand their values and desire to make a difference
  • make contacts with other organizations in the state, leaders of AAUW from outside NC, and our more than 1000 branch members

Does that sound like you? Do you know someone else who is looking for this challenge?

The AAUW NC nominating committee is recruiting candidates for the positions of president-elect, treasurer and program vice president. The president-elect will assume the presidency on July 1, 2010 and serve until June 30, 2012 as the chief executive of the organization. During 2009-2010, the president-elect will be a key member of the AAUW NC board to learn more about the organization and its interactions with the branches, the national AAUW, and our coalition partners. The treasurer and program vice president will serve July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2011. The treasurer is the chief financial officer, and the program vice president has overall responsibility for the specific ways AAUW NC implements the AAUW mission.

The committee is also recruiting for five members of the 2009-2010 nominating committee.

If you would like to volunteer or to recommend someone else for any of these positions, please contact a member of the nominating committee: Karla Atkinson (Brevard), Phyllis Guberman (Wilmington), Elizabeth Laney (High Country), B’Ann Vance (Gaston Regional), and Nancy Shoemaker (Raleigh/Wake County).

Watch for more information in the Tar Heel News,  but we ask that you start thinking of candidates (or consider volunteering) now.

[Note: The national organization is also recruiting candidates. Their deadline is October 1. For more details, see www.aauw.org.]
