04 Dec 2018 Nominations Committee Announces Slate for Board of Directors
Dear Brothers of Alpha Phi Omega,
The Nominations Committee, consisting of 8 Student Advisory Committee Members and 2 Past National Presidents, has been hard at work throughout the fall interviewing candidates, reviewing materials and talking with colleagues who worked with the candidates to serve on the Board of Directors. The Committee spent many hours discussing the qualities, skills, and knowledge necessary that Board members poses to lead the Fraternity going forward.
The criteria the committee used was threefold. First, the performance of the candidate on previous projects and in prior roles within the Fraternity. Second, strategic perspective. Did the candidate have a 30,000 foot view of Alpha Phi Omega and how to advance the organization strategically? Finally, does the candidate work cooperatively with others as collaboration is necessary for a Board such as ours to be successful? For fairness, candidates were asked the same questions. In addition to questions regarding the three principal criteria, each candidate was given the opportunity to share anything additional he or she wanted taken into consideration.
In addition to speaking at length with each candidate, the committee spoke to several people regarding the candidates. The reference pool included past presidents and National Committee members to get a broad perspective on the candidates. For consistency, the reference pool was asked the same set of questions based on our primary criteria of performance, strategic perspective and collaboration.
The Committee’s slate being proposed to the 2018 Convention is:
In Leadership, Friendship, and Service,
Rebecca Brennan, Co-Chair Nominating Committee
Maggie Katz, Co-Chair Nominating Committee
