Under our by-laws, the annual EDGE Board nomination process is this month, starting with our open application period. If YOU are interested in applying to become a board member, here are some FAQs:

Q: Am I qualified to be an EDGE Board member?
The Board Nominating Committee will consider applications from all eligible candidates, and will be looking for level of past and present participation in the EBDA (including committees, events, etc.), specific interest in serving on the board, and background experience lending well to board service.

The Board Nominating Committee will meet in early July to review the applications, and then decide the final slate of nominations to place on the board election ballot.

Election winners will be announced at the EBDA Annual Meeting in September.
