Three Director positions are up for grabs in this year’s election at CURE’s 22nd Annual Meeting and Celebration. The meeting and election are scheduled for Saturday, May 3rd at Bootleggers Supper Club in Granite Falls. Director’s terms run for two years.
CURE’s Board of Directors oversees the mission and operations of the organization. Board members are expected to serve on a limited number of committees, volunteer at CURE events when possible, represent the organization at certain regional events, and help CURE raise money.
Candidates must be CURE members to run for election. Someone who is not currently a member should become one before stepping up to run. Members may nominate themselves or be nominated by another CURE member.
In addition to being a CURE member, candidates must be 18 years old at the time of the election. They must also support CURE’s mission and commit the time needed to attend meetings and to participate fully in Board governance.
Nominations to the Board will be reviewed by CURE’s Board Development Committee. Although anyone who meets the qualifications listed above may stand for election and be listed on the ballot, the Board Development Committee will recommend a slate of preferred candidates from the nomination pool that are thought to best serve the needs of the Board and organization at this time. Diversity, gender, and certain skill sets will be considered when identifying preferred candidates. Nominations must be received by the CURE Office by Saturday, April 26th. Nominations from the floor are not permitted.
Nominations should be emailed to Dixie Tilden, Dixie@cureriver.org, or mailed to:
