We Want YOU! ASTD-OC 2012 Chapter Leadership Now Forming

08/02/2011 4:12 PM | Rhonda Askeland

This time of year reminds me of the Uncle Sam posters, “I Want YOU” and the chapter’s pursuit of chapter leaders and volunteers.  Of course, we aren’t drafting anyone and the experience of working on the board and with the chapter provides learning opportunities, leadership growth, and satisfaction in helping people throughout the chapter.

August is “Nomination Month” and we are in the process of taking nominations for the various board roles.  We have restructured the board and have seven board roles up for election:

  • President-elect – assists the President in managing the chapter and preparation to lead the chapter in 2013
  • Secretary – oversees compliance and prepares and submits chapter documentation
  • VP Finance – oversees financial operation and prepares and submits budget and financial reports
  • VP Marketing – leads teams to coordinate all marketing and communication activities
  • VP Membership – leads teams to coordinate all membership activities
  • VP Programs – leads teams that coordinate all professional development activities
  • VP Technology – leads teams that coordinate all technology activities

We have contacted a number of people and have begun to accept nominations.  The nomination process concludes August 26th with the election process beginning September 1st and concluding September 30th.

Has a specific area always interested you?  Do you know someone who would be good in a role?   There are many roles that help the chapter.  Your commitment can be minimal, based on the time you have available, or more comprehensive, if your schedule allows.  Would you like to help the chapter, just not in a board position?  There are various ways to support the chapter in roles outside of the board.  Contact us and we'll answer any questions you may have.

Shortly, you will receive a nomination form.  We will also post the nomination form on the new website.  Take a few minutes and reflect on a role for yourself or a role that may be good for a colleague, a direct report, or a professional you may know.

Here are a few ways to contact touch us:

We definitely “Want YOU” and look forward to seeing how we might work together.


Rhonda Askeland, President-elect
