By Kathy Walker, RTDNA Nominations Committee Chair
One of the most important privileges of being a voting member in the world’s largest association of electronic journalists is the opportunity to become one of the leaders of our Association. This fall, RTDNA will be holding elections for our next chair-elect, along with other seats on our board of directors. Your participation is an important part in determining our organization’s future.
Have you ever considered the personal and professional benefits to board service? Not only do you make policy for RTDNA and its Foundation, but you make friends and business connections. This year, elections will be held for board seats in Region 1, 2, 7, 8, 11, and 12 along with two at-large seats. In addition, the membership will choose our next chair-elect at the conclusion of our convention this year in Anaheim.
Regional directors and directors-at-large serve two-year terms and volunteer to attend meetings both by conference call and at our RTDNA events, including the annual convention. Candidates for RTDNA board seats must declare their candidacies by July 6, 2017. Election results will be announced on September 9 at Excellence in Journalism 2017 in Anaheim, at the RTDNA closing business session.
