OSBA Board nomination deadline approaching Sept. 30

The deadline is looming this week for nominations for 10 positions on the OSBA Board of Directors. Member boards may also submit resolutions for a vote by the membership.

Open positions are 1 (Eastern), 2 (Gorge), 5 (Southern), 7 (Clackamas), 9 (Douglas/South Coast), 11 (Marion), 13 (Yamhill/Polk), 15 (Washington), 17 (Multnomah) and 19 (Multnomah). Candidate nomination materials and any resolutions are due in OSBA offices by 5 p.m. Sept. 30. All terms are for two years, except position 2, which is for one year.

Board members interested in running for a position on the OSBA Board need to be nominated by a member board within their region. Nominations require official board action. Sample language is available to assist in making a motion or resolution to stand for election to the OSBA Board.

Local board members can meet candidates for their region by attending Fall Regionals being scheduled throughout the state. All candidates are invited to speak at their area’s regional meeting, giving OSBA members an opportunity to get to know the people who want to represent them.

Election materials and a calendar can been found on the OSBA website.
