Dear Members and Supporters: If you have ever wondered how *you* can make a direct impact on the direction of projects and programs at Heritage Square Museum (HSM), wonder no longer! This is your chance to be a part of the exciting changes and growth of *your* museum. All members in good standing, with all dues current, are encouraged to apply for the Board of Directors. And if your dues aren't current, now is the time to rectify that situation so you can submit a nomination for yourself, another member, or an enthusiastic supporter who would like to jump in with both feet to help shape plans for HSM.
We invite you to nominate qualified and motivated individuals who are willing to be considered for election and to serve out the two-year term. We also encourage each member to consider serving as a Board member yourself to help HSM remain vital and prosperous. The nomination form, found on our website (http://heritagesquare.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/HSMBoardMemberNominationForm21Jan2013Final.pdf) must be received by February 18, 2013, in order for a nominee to be considered. The credentials of each nominee will be verified by the HSM Nominating Committee. Every nominator must be a member in good standing, and every nominee who accepts their selection must become a member at the Contributing (or higher) level.
Candidates should be aware of the time commitments of a Board member. Each term lasts two years with the possibility of reappointment. Board members attend a monthly Board meeting plus occasional sub-committee meetings. Attendance at a minimum number of events is required, with attendance at *all* major events encouraged. Financial contributions are at the Contributing level the first year of the Board term and at the Society level or above after the first year of Board service.
Candidates must be passionate about Heritage Square Museum's mission, goals, and values. Experience with high-level decision-making and knowledge in areas such as public policy, marketing, business finance, fundraising, historical architecture, and volunteerism are desirable.
On behalf of the Heritage Square Museum Nominating Committee, we’d like to acknowledge past and current Board members and thank them for their dedication and service. We’d also like to acknowledge all who choose to run for the Board this year and thank everyone who participates in the election process. Best of luck to all the nominees!
The Heritage Square Museum Nominating Committee
Alexandria Fabbro, Chair
