Volunteer to Help Us Develop Leaders: Join the new Leadership Development Committee
July 1, 2020 Governance Updates
As part of the recent bylaws amendment vote, CCIAOR members approved the creation of a Leadership Development Committee to recruit and qualify candidates for the CCIAOR and CCIMLS Board of Directors. The Leadership Development Committee has a critical role in shaping the leadership of the Association and MLS, which will impact the decision making and direction of the organizations into the future. We are now actively looking for members who are interested in serving on this committee.
If you are interested in serving on the Leadership Development Committee, please fill out and submit the form below by July 19th. All interest forms will be reviewed, and the CCIAOR President, with confirmation from the Board of Directors, will appoint the members of the committee by the end of July.
Role of Leadership Development Committee
The role of the Leadership Development Committee is to recruit and qualify candidates for the Board of Directors and to oversee the annual Board of Directors election process ensuring compliance with the CCIAOR and CCIMLS Bylaws. Recruitment involves identifying current and projected vacancies on the board, assessing the composition of the current board and identifying gaps in competencies or demographics, and finding and recruiting potential candidates.
The Leadership Development Committee is also charged with developing a position description for board members to inform prospective candidates of qualifications in terms of their experience and background and what will be expected of them if they join the board.
The Leadership Development Committee shall solicit and accept applications for all positions up for election in that year, including:
- The CCIAOR Board of Directors officer and director positions;
- The CCIMLS Board of Directors officer and director positions;
- Any NAR Director(s) allocated to CCIAOR
The Leadership Development Committee shall be composed of seven (7) CCIAOR members. No member seeking elected office for that year shall be appointed to serve. The CCIAOR Immediate Past President shall serve as the chairperson. There is no vice-chairperson. No other members of the Board of Directors shall serve on the committee.
3-5 meetings per calendar year; the majority of meetings will be in late summer and early fall in preparation for the Board elections for the upcoming year.
For 2020, the first meeting of the Leadership Development Committee will be scheduled for early August. We expect the 2020 commitment to be a series of 3 to 4 meetings held virtually over the course of August and September.
Six (6) positions are open to serve on the 2020 Leadership Development Committee.
