Pursuant to the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance By-Laws, the Nominating Committee is seeking nominations for the Board of Directors. Three members will be elected to serve a three-year term beginning with the 2018 Conference this November.
Board members are legally, financially, and ethically responsible for the organization. They should always have a higher expectation of service than any other volunteer in the organization.
Additionally, board members are expected to participate in the following events:
10 monthly tele-video conference calls,
Two annual Board retreats (Spring/Summer and pre-conference)
The NERFA conference itself.
Those not selected by the nominating committee may petition their way onto the final ballot this fall by submitting ten (10) letters of recommendation from current FAI members after the initial slate of candidates is presented to the membership in August. The final slate of candidates will be sent out on or about Oct. 1, while ballots will be distributed to all voting members in the region shortly thereafter.
