AHDI is seeking qualified District Director candidates in each of the 6 districts to stand in an election for the National Leadership Board.
As you know, AHDI members recently voted to support a change in AHDI’s governance to expand the current Board of Directors to a National Leadership Board that will now include 6 directors elected from identified districts across the association. These newly elected District Directors will bring representative leadership to this new Board structure and ensure that members continue to have a constituent voice in decisions that are made at the national level. With several key goals and challenges ahead, AHDI needs the very best to lead the way.
The ideal candidate for District Director will have a strong desire to serve and lead at the national level, the leadership expertise and background to contribute to policy decisions and professional practice discussions, and a willingness to work collaboratively toward the association’s strategic goals. To qualify, a candidate must have been an Individual Professional member in good standing for at least one year immediately preceding candidacy. Terms will be staggered for continuity, with two-year terms for Districts 1, 3 and 5 and three-year terms for Districts 2, 4 and 6. Elected directors will take office effective September 1, 2011. More detailed information can be viewed at the AHDI Candidacy web page after login.
To request a candidacy packet, contact Wendy Carriegan at firstname.lastname@example.org. The packet includes an application form, letter of intent, biosketch, and a candidate goals and objectives statement. A digital head shot photo should be included for publication in the candidate ballot. The deadline for receipt of all materials in the AHDI office is April 29, 2011.
