Where are you on your leadership journey?Being on the Nominating Committee A nominating committee is a group formed usually from inside the membership of an organization for the purpose of nominating candidates for office within the organization. It works similarly to an electoral college, the main difference being that the available candidates, either this past year has been an honor and a great learning experience. I have always been impressed with the leadership and organizational planning of AACN AACN American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology
AACN American Association of Critical-Care Nurses
AACN American Association of Colleges of Nursing
AACN Advanced Automatic Crash Notification (General Motors) , but being involved in the process for selecting our new leaders has given me an even deeper appreciation of the conscious effort that AACN makes to choose the very best individuals to guide our future success.
Are you interested in leading AACN to new heights? Where are you on your personal leadership journey? As with any journey, it always helps to consult someone who has been there before. No doubt you have had many guides on your journey thus far. As a member of the Nominating Committee, I hope to give you a few "travel tips" to help make you a more confident and successful traveler.
First, where have you been before? Have you held leadership roles in your community, at work or with AACN that are similar to the destination or role that interests you? Previous leadership experience always helps, but it doesn't have to be exclusively with AACN. Perhaps you were the chairperson chairperson Chairman The head of an academic department. See 'Chair.', Cf Chief. for a committee at work. As you fill out the Nominee Questionnaire, be sure to explain how your previous experience prepares you for your desired role.
Second, have a road map and a guide. The primary road map for this journey is the "Framework for Governance Leadership Positions." Refer to it frequently and give examples of how you demonstrate the competencies as you complete your questionnaire. Also, identify a mentor or "guide" who can review your responses and offer suggestions. Be prepared to make adjustments. Also, give yourself time to make necessary changes. The most successful applications are those with clear, concise answers.
Finally, after your application has been submitted, sit back and enjoy the ride. Just completing the questionnaire is a growth experience. Remember, there are often many twists and turns in the road. Sometimes even an unexpected detour can be a highlight of the trip. The Nominating Committee wishes you a successful journey.
