RECRUITMENT CONSIDERATIONS

 

Diversity

Each Board member brings his/her own unique perspective to CITE . According to the National Council of Nonprofits, “each person will bring his or her own personal and professional contacts and life experience to their service on a nonprofit board.  With a diversity of experience, expertise, and perspectives a nonprofit is in a stronger position to face opportunities and challenges.”

 

Diversity considerations include:  Gender , ethnic,  and racial diversity,  Geographic diversity,  Industry segment diversity

 

Board Participation and Attendance

 

It is important for the Board to select new members that will be active and committed.  CITE is increasingly relying on its committee structure to accomplish governance goals and needs capable Board members who not only attend Board meetings, but also actively serve on a committee.  Candidates must have authority for memberships, travel, conference registration fees and other expenses in order to be able to participate in CITE meetings and events. 

 

The Nominating Committee is interested in candidates that can commit to the following: 

 

  • Attendance at all scheduled Board meetings, both in-person and online.
  • Advance preparation for regular Board meetings and committee meetings.
  • Advocating for interests of CITE  between meetings at regional group meetings and other events.

 

Leadership, Guidance, and Vision

 

Technology in education continues to change rapidly.  The  Board of Directors will be comfortable providing  leadership,  guidance ,  and vision to promote and position  CITE  as the thought leader for  the use of technology in education.

 

  Image and Stature

 

CITE’s  image and stature has grown substantially over the last few years  and with our new name and brand, that trend will continue.  To build on momentum, CITE’s Board of Directors should be positioned to use their connections and stature to promote CITE into opportunities to further enhance its brand awareness, including participation in executive meetings/forums, contributing to news stories in industry publications, and creating speaking opportunities at high profile  education  events.  Improved awareness coming from examples such as these will ultimately result in improved presence and influence with industry and added clout.

 

Candidates must ensure there are no conflicts of interest that would interfere with their service on the CITE Board of Directors.  Any change in employment or additional volunteer service must be disclosed to the Board of Directors.

 

  Skills and Expertise

 

Annually the Governance Committee will assess the competencies of current Board members against the needs of the organization (in relation to its strategic plan) to identify skill and/or expertise gaps.  The Nominating Committee will seek candidates that fill these gaps  if one or more Board seats will be available.
