CANDIDATES FOR BOARD OF DIRECTORS - PRA

CALL FOR CANDIDATES

Nominations for PRA Board of Directors are now open.

Three places will be filled this year and we encourage members who are interested in a position on the Board, to submit a biographical sketch and background of leadership, as described below by October 15, 2013.

Candidates will be sent on an e-ballot to members (or by mail) on November 1. All ballots will be counted and recorded by December 10, 2013 and the announcement of election results for the Board of Directors will be made December 15, 2013.

All Board Members and Officers must be a current PRA Member.

The Board of Directors is required by our Articles of Corporation and Bylaws. The Board is charged with the management and oversight of the Corporation. Board Members have a fiduciary and legal responsibility to manage the Corporation according to current statutes.

The position is elected by PRA Members to a 3 year term of office. Each year 3 of our Board Members terms expire so we have a smooth transition each year. While there are no assigned tasks or jobs assigned to any Board Member, many of us do serve as an Officer or in some other volunteer position. We need our Board Members to take an active role helping the PRA meet our goals and objectives.

The position needs a Member who:

· Wants to be a contributing member of our team and is eager to help us succeed.

· Is computer "savvy" and has Internet access (preferably broadband/high speed connection).

· Is able to meet at least twice a year online (we use online meeting software).

o We are required by our bylaws to meet every other year but for financial reasons we've been holding our meetings online.

· Is able to communicate on a regular basis with other PRA Members to keep them informed and ask their opinions about the PRA.

· Is able to work with and communicate with other Board Members, Officers and other volunteers.

· Is willing to aggressively reach out to PRA Members and seek their input.

· Is willing to aggressively reach out to PRA Members and keep them informed of current PRA activities.
