Call for nominations for the EPIC-N Board of Directors

Nomination deadline: Tuesday, July 7, 2021 at 11:59pm CT

The Educational Partnerships for Innovation in Communities – Network (EPIC-N) is a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit association with members all over the world. Our organization is governed by an engaged board of directors that works on behalf of the organization and represents EPIC-N members and stakeholders. The board members also ensure member programs maintain a strong voice in deciding EPIC-N priorities while recruiting international experts to strengthen the organization.

EPIC-N is currently seeking nominations for committed members to take a leadership role and serve on the Board of Directors.

Members of our Board of Directors commit to:

  • Serving for a three-year term
  • Meeting several times a year, both virtually and in-person
    • Board members attend all board meetings for the year with exceptions allowed for pre-identified causes or emergencies. Last fiscal year, board meetings lasted on average 1.5 hours and occurred on August 18, October 20, December 15, January 8-9 (full day virtual board retreat), February 16, April 20, and June 15.
    • Before and during the board meetings, directors are expected to fully participate. EPIC-N uses a consent agenda framework that requires drafting and/or review prior to, as well as during, meetings. Learn more about consent agendas here.
  • Attending annual in-person conferences (when safe to do so).
    • Historically board members who request financial support to attend the annual EPIC-Network Conference have received it.
  • Participating in board subcommittees or working groups as available.
  • Championing EPIC-N to external individuals and organizations.
  • Treating all participants in the EPIC-Network programs with respect and dignity.

Both self-nominations and nominations of your colleagues are enthusiastically welcomed by the nomination deadline of Tuesday, July 7 at 11:59 PM CT
