Board Candidate Applications Closing Soon!

Wednesday, 24 May 2023 09:23

Candidate applications to be considered for the National AfterSchool Association (NAA) Board of Directors are due Friday, May 26, 2023 at 9 p.m. ET! The term begins in July 2023, and our primary focus for this year’s board applications is on leaders whose work and professional expertise can further the goals of NAA and the afterschool profession through advocacy, media/messaging/storytelling, and fundraising.

We are committed to creating a diverse board of leaders from a broad spectrum of organizations and agencies. Appointed members are chosen by the board to reflect a broad knowledge and awareness of the issues facing the Association. Candidates for election are chosen for their ability to objectively consider a variety of perspectives inherent in decisions affecting the Association's future, not to represent a group, region or interest.

These candidates are selected based on their ability to demonstrate strong commitment to the field, and are expected to possess a broad experience in nonprofit association management, leadership skills and expert knowledge. We’re looking for self-starters with a current NAA membership and “big picture” vision and an ability to grasp the nature of governance and operations of a complex, multi-faceted, intermediary, national organization.

Members interested in serving on the NAA National Board of Directors should review the NAA Board Job Description and use this planning document to prepare answers to the application questions, and then complete the online application here. Candidates need to submit a professional headshot, up-to-date resume or CV, two references that support the application and a short (less than two minutes) campaign video by this Friday, so renew your membership and apply today!
