2014 Board Interest
Share |
SEDC annually elects alternate directors for each state and about half of our 17 states elect a new director each year. These elections are held during our annual conference in August and those elected will take office the following January 1st. This form will help our state directors in providing names of members from their states interested in a leadership role with the association. If you are interested in submitting your name for consideration of a board position please complete the following form.

Your Role as an SEDC Director or Alternate would be:
1. To contribute to defining the association’s mission and governing the fulfillment of that mission.

2. To carry out the duties of the position as outlined in SEDC's Constitution listed below:

Article V:

Section 6: Directors -- It shall be the duty of the Directors to represent the interest of the members of their respective states at all Board meetings. They shall serve on special committees as requested by the Chairman. They are specifically charged with membership relations in their respective states.

Section 7: Alternate Directors -- It shall be the duty of the Alternate Director to assist the State Director in membership relations in their respective state and to represent the interest of the members of their respective state. They shall be available to serve on special committees as requested by the Chairman.
As a board member your role would focus on the development of policies that govern the implementation of institutional plans and purposes and not necessarily the means of implementation.

*Both Alternate Director and Directors are invited to our board meetings, though only the Directors vote. Alternates will vote in place of their absent Director.

As a board member you will be asked:

1. To establish as a high priority your attendance at all meeting of the board and committees on which you serve.

2. To be prepared to discuss the issues and business addressed at scheduled meetings, having read the agenda and all background material relevant to the topics at hand.

3. To work with and respect the opinions of your peers who serve this board and to leave your personal prejudices out of all board discussions.

4. To always act for the good of the association.

5. To represent SEDC in a positive and supportive manner at all times and in all places.

6. To observe the parliamentary procedures and display courteous conduct in all board and committee meetings.
