Board Member Selection Process

Addendum I:  KSAA Current Term Operating Plan

Section 1:

During the Fall KSAA Meeting, the Chair of the Membership and Governance Committee will request that current KSAA members, Krannert administration, staff, and faculty suggest nominees for consideration to be selected to the KSAA by December 1 following the Fall KSAA Meeting. Nominees for consideration are to be submitted directly to the Chair of the Membership and Governance Committee.

Section 2:

Immediately following the Fall KSAA Meeting, the Membership and Governance Committee will begin the process of assessing the membership status and composition of the KSAA. The objective of this exercise is to evaluate the timing of transitions, vacancies, and board departures to help inform the number of new members to select.

Section 2.1:

Membership status will be confirmed via email or phone confirmation. The membership assessment process will begin during the Fall KSAA Meeting and conclude by December 1, to coincide with the nominee deadline outlined in Addendum 1, Section 1.1 above.

Section 3:

Following the nominee submission deadline, the Membership and Governance Committee will review the candidates, evaluating against the criteria outlined in Section 3, Subsection 3.3.1 of the bylaws above. Following the review of the nominees, the Membership and Governance Committee will provide a list of suggested candidates to the KSAA President and the Director of Alumni Relations for additional insight and guidance before moving to a larger review, vote, and approval by the KSAA Board (outlined below).

Section 4:

The Membership and Governance Committee will provide the KSAA Board the list of suggested candidates identified to fill vacancies and gaps, relative to the structure outlined in Article 3, Section 3.2 in the Bylaws above. This list (and associated review materials) will be provided no later than four weeks prior to the Spring KSAA Meeting.

Section 4.1:

It is expected that the current KSAA members will review the suggested candidates and their associated backgrounds prior to the Spring KSAA Meeting. During that Spring KSAA Meeting, the Membership and Governance Committee will hold a vote to approve the nominees as official KSAA Board Members, with service and terms to begin the following Fall KSAA Meeting. Candidates will be chosen based upon a majority vote of the KSAA members.

Section 5:

Once approved, it is expected that the Chair of the Membership and Governance Committee, along with the KSAA President and the Director of Alumni Relations, will follow up with notification of approval to the candidates chosen to serve.
