CUPA-HR Leadership Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in serving as a member of the CUPA-HR national board of directors. Nominations for the 2019-20 board will open in December 2018.

Chair-Elect

National board of directors chair-elect candidates should submit a resume and cover letter indicating your interest in helping CUPA-HR lead work related to the association’s strategic priorities. The cover letter and resume should be submitted by email to President and CEO Andy Brantley at abrantley@cupahr.org. All materials must be received by January 31, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. ET.

The resume and cover letters for all chair-elect candidates will be posted on the CUPA-HR website by the end of the day on February 8, 2019, and information will be communicated to CUPA-HR members in the February CUPA-HR eNews. The eNews article announcing the candidates will also encourage members to provide any feedback regarding the candidates to any member on the national board.

All candidates for chair-elect who meet the minimum qualifications are interviewed by the national board during a 30- to 45-minute conference call.

The national board elects the chair-elect using a secret ballot election process. We anticipate the board’s decision regarding the chair-elect candidates will be communicated no later than March 8, 2019.

At-Large Board Members

At-large board member candidates should complete the electronic application by January 31, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. ET. Information regarding at-large candidates is available for review only by the national board. The board will select at-large board members to begin service effective July 1, 2019.

At its spring meeting, the national board will consider the pool of candidates for the vacant at-large seats on the board. Selection for membership on the national board will be guided by the following:

  1. The members-at-large criteria;
  2. The goals and priorities of CUPA-HR for the upcoming three to five years and board activities resulting from these goals and priorities;
  3. Any specific professional experience, skills and abilities that would bring needed value and expertise to the board as it serves the priorities of CUPA-HR; and
  4. The make-up of the existing national board vis-a-vis representation of the diversity of CUPA-HR member organizations and member representatives.

The board’s decision regarding the at-large candidates will be communicated no later than May 3, 2019.
