Governance and Nominating Committee

Group Type: 
Committee

The Governance and Nominating Committee guides the annual process of preparing a slate of candidates for the Board of Directors at their spring meeting; the slate is then presented to the membership for adoption at PNY's Annual Meeting. Each year, the work of the Committee focuses on the following responsibilities:

·         Overseeing the nominations process to the Membership; conducting interviews with nominees; and liaising with members of the Board of Directors and staff to finalize a slate of candidates

·         Leading interviews with members of the Board of Directors completing their first term to review their experience and recommend their election to pursuing a second and final term

At least three members of this Committee must be Board members. Although there is no maximum number set for the Governance and Nominating Committee, the entirety of its members must be Board or former Board members, due to the nature of the Committee’s mandate.
