Nominating Committee Process

The Nominating Committee is charged with the responsibility to strategically identify, evaluate, and provide a report to the membership for the Executive Council leadership of Sigma Sigma Sigma. The members of the Nominating Committee have influence on the future of the organization and should each be carefully selected. Nominating Committee members need a broad knowledge of the membership and the organization’s mission, vision, and values, including the strategic plan.  

Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. ET on July 31, 2024.

Note: You must be logged into Sigma Connect to access the form.

Executive Council will work to assemble a committee that reflects the diversity of Tri Sigma’s membership and interests. Committee diversity shall include but is not limited to age, geographic location, sexual orientation, race and ethnicity, professional experience, and volunteer/leadership experience. It will be comprised of:

  • One (1) committee chair appointed by Executive Council in a process separate from this Nominating Committee application and selection process
