Original Press Release
Call for Nominations for 2009 ANSI Board of Directors
Press release date: May 5, 2008
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) invites all members to submit a nomination for the 2009 ANSI Board of Directors. Nominations are for terms beginning on January 1, 2009.
ANSI strives to ensure balance and diversity within its membership and is seeking Board members who enhance member relationships and networks. To facilitate the nominations process, ANSI has compiled a set of guidelines for nominations that outline the sectors that are currently underrepresented in ANSI's Board of Directors. The guidelines for nominations, as well as nomination forms, general information, and ANSI's code of ethics, are available in the ANSI Online Library. Nominations must be received by June 9, 2008.
All nominations for the Board require a biographical statement and a letter of corporate support (note: letter of corporate support is not required for corporate officers or for individual and government members). Candidates for the Board of Directors will be referred to the Board Nominating Committee and nominations by that Committee will be subsequently balloted for election by the ANSI membership.
The Board is responsible for the management and control of the activities, property, and affairs of ANSI, including the strategic direction of the Institute, the annual budget, and the scope of responsibilities of the Board and Institute Committees, Councils, and Boards.
Nomination forms may be submitted through Monday, June 9, 2008, to Tricia Power, ANSI assistant to the vice president and general counsel (firstname.lastname@example.org; fax: 212.840.2298 or 212.398.0023). Alternatively, nominations may be mailed to:
American National Standards Institute ATTN: Tricia Power 25 West 43rd Street, 4th Floor New York, NY 10036-7414
