Three Board of Director positions are open for election in 2019. Two seats are open to all eligible NORDP members; one seat is designated for an eligible NORDP member affiliated with a minority-serving institution and/or a regional institution. New Board members are elected for four-year terms.
As a volunteer-led organization, NORDP’s momentum and mission are driven by its member leaders. Individuals elected to the Board of Directors have the primary responsibilities of ensuring the organization’s effective governance, fiscal responsibility, and strategic direction.
Board members also play a leading role in advancing the organization’s processes and priorities. These range from member services, mentoring, and strategic alliances to inclusive excellence and New Opportunities in Research Development (NORD). Individuals elected to serve on NORDP Board spend 10 to 12 hours per month fulfilling their duties.
According to current and past members of the Board, this service yields significant professional and personal gains. Examples include helping to organize and advance the research development community, strengthening professional networks, and building new friendships.
If you or someone you know is ready to contribute time and talent to the future of NORDP, consider submitting a Board application or nomination today. More information about these processes is available here.
