Nominating Committee

Nominating Committee Members (two-year term)

The nominating committee has four elected members, with two members elected each year to serve a two-year term. The nominating committee holds an organizational meeting at the annual conference and meets by conference call regularly to carry on the committee’s business and to develop a slate of candidates for each election.

The committee’s most effective members are those who know many STC members at the Society level and those who are good judges of character and leadership potential.
