During July you will be asked to complete a candidate profile/ application form describing your professional work responsibilities, your current and past involvement in CREW, and the committees or activities in CREW that you’d like to focus on. After completion of these forms, you will be interviewed by the Governance Committee during a slot during August 2016 to allow us to learn more about your interests and qualifications.
The Governance Committee is responsible for seeking and evaluating qualified candidates for the open 2017 Board positions and proposing a slate of candidates, which must be approved by the general CREW SF membership.
We strongly encourage you to nominate yourself or others in our organization. Please call any current board member to find out how rewarding serving on the board of CREW San Francisco or working on a CREW committee can be. You may also telephone any member of this year’s Governance Committee:
