Call for Board Nominations for SEAPAX Elections

Now is the time to nominate candidates–yourself included–for SEAPAX board positions. The requirements to be eligible to be on the board are a paid membership to SEAPAX, an active interest in SEAPAX and commitment to working as team to help the SEAPAX community thrive. All candidates and interested SEAPAX members are invited to contact current board members about the duties and responsibilities of specific positions and what it’s like to be on a board.

We’d love to have you consider yourselves for a position on the board this year. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to any current (or past) board member directly. In general, SEAPAX is a collaborative group, and this is not a competitive election process. Ideally, we’d like to be able to get a sense of who was interested in what positions and then match up names and roles accordingly, and then post it on the official ballot as discussed.
