Upcoming Elections for Officers and Directors

June 14, 2017
Notice to all Members of PA3

The Princeton Area Alumni Association plans to hold its annual meeting for 2017 in the fall (as in previous years) at a date to be announced. Under our by-laws, we will conduct elections at that annual meeting for officers and directors of the Association. It is anticipated that a number of positions – both officers and directors – will need to be filled as current terms expire and some current office holders step down. Among the positions likely to be open are president, vice-president, secretary, and four positions as directors. In addition, the Association is in need of various committee chairs, who manage specific aspects of PA3’s activities.

Please consult our website for a list of officers, directors, and committee chair positions. A copy of the by-laws, with descriptions of the responsibilities of the various officers and directors, is available on that website under the link “governance” at the left.

Prior active experience working with PA3 is of course a plus, but is not a necessary precondition. Candidates who indicate an interest and willingness to serve will be considered by the Committee prior to the annual meeting. Please note these are not “honorary” positions. Leadership roles within PA3 require active participation in the Association’s activities and management. Time commitments vary with the position; the work is collegial and rewarding.

If you may be interested in taking a leadership position in PA3 in any of the above roles, please contact any member of the Nominating and Governance Committee, which is mandated by our by-laws to propose a slate to the annual meeting. In order to allow the Committee to consider potential candidates in good time, indications of interest should be received before July 15. All inquiries are of course non-binding.

Members of the Committee are:

 George Bustin ’70, Chair gbustin@cgsh.com
 Tom Swift ’76 tswift@alumni.princeton.edu
 Cheryl Rowe Rendleman ’81 cheryl.rowerendleman@gmail.com
 Lydia Zaininger ’83 lydia@zaininger.com
 Kristin (Alyea) Epstein ’97 jandkepstein@hotmail.com
