THE COMPOSITION OF OUR nominating committee is specified in our bylaws The rules and regulations enacted by an association or a corporation to provide a framework for its operation and management.
Bylaws may specify the qualifications, rights, and liabilities of membership, and the powers, duties, and grounds for the dissolution of an , thus I have little influence on the selection of its members. My responsibility, therefore, is to make sure that only the most qualified candidates come to the attention of the committee. This is accomplished by working hard to ensure that only those who have the qualities we seek for leaders at the highest levels of our organization are selected for leadership slots on the bottom rungs of the leadership ladder.

Located along the Western bank of the Potomac River, Alexandria is approximately 6 miles (9.6 kilometers) south of downtown Washington, DC.
THE DECISION MADE by a nominating committee is usually the most important made in a business trade association. While our current nominating committee makeup is set by bylaws, a sharp focus is placed on nominating committee composition and procedure in the association's periodic planning process, with the following guidelines in mind.
1. The nominating committee can block the vice chair's ascendancy to chair, or chief elected officer, by having only the immediate past chair and current chair serve.
2. The immediate past chair is the nominating committee chair so that institutional knowledge is part of the process.
3. Our chair of chapter council is on the committee to ensure that chapter leaders have input.
4. Our associate/vendor members have a voice on the committee approximately equal to their membership.
5. Two members are elected to the committee by a 40-person board of governors to ensure that a non-board of directors voice is heard.
Like most associations, we have written diversity goals in our plan. But unless the appropriate voices are at the table, the written policies will not be reality.
