Below are the AGM election results.
Wednesday, May 29th to Wednesday, June 5th
NCF’s Annual General Meeting is held online so that
as many as possible of NCF’s thousands of members can participate.
Welcome to NCF’s 26th Annual General Meeting.
The nominations period is from Tuesday, May 14th at 8am until Tuesday, May 21st 11:59pm.
If you have any questions or are interested in putting your nomination forward, please send an expression of interest, including your name and NCF member ID, to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, May 17th.
The roles of a board member: Prospective board members come from all walks of life and bring varied experience to the Board. The ability to understand financial reporting and to make business decisions is essential, and often board members have subject-area expertise, such as experience in management or law. Collectively, NCF’s eleven board members have the experience to recognize and approve plans and strategies that will move NCF toward its goals. Read more here.
NCF has a governance board, where day-to-day operations are handled by staff and volunteers, under the management of the Executive Director. The Board sets the mission, vision, principles, and broad policies that guide the Executive Director. The Board is responsible for employing and evaluating the Executive Director, and for monitoring macro parameters that measure the operation of NCF.
Candidates are asked to answer three questions and to provide other information that they believe will be helpful to voters. The three questions are:
This year there are five seats to fill, of varying term length: Four 3-year seats and one 2-year seat. Vote count will determine allocation of seats.
The listing order of candidate names below is determined by random draw. The listing order on ballots is also random (for each ballot) and so likely isn’t the same as below.
The candidates are:
|Candidate||Nominated by||Seconded by|
|Chris Cope||Nomination Committee|
|Andrea Holland||Nomination Committee|
|Lauren Gardner||Nomination Committee|
|Dan Auns||Nomination Committee|
|Anis Hanna||Nomination Committee|
|Omer Livvarcin||Nomination Committee|
|Oliver Benning||Nomination Committee|
