Being a director is hard work, but it's also rewarding. Directors are expected to attend board and committee meetings (2-10 hours of online video conferencing meetings per month) and work on assignments in between meetings. Voting occurs during monthly full board meetings that are usually 9-11 PM EST on weeknights, though we try to schedule meetings every year to best accommodate our directors’ schedules across different time zones. Beyond the ability to impact an organization that you love, being on a nonprofit board is a great learning opportunity for students and young professionals.
Applications for the NAIGC Board of Directors are open from March 10th – April 4th. You will not be added to the ballot unless you complete this application, regardless of whether you were nominated. Voting will occur April 6th – April 20th.
