Becoming a Director
CEGA is looking for candidates who value collaborative work with other Board members while embracing the challenge of strategizing, developing, and executing plans related to their specific portfolio. The portfolios within CEGA may vary from year to year, and additional directors may be appointed by the Board for one-year terms.
Preferred qualifications for candidates include prior Board experience, leadership skills, a pragmatic attitude, visionary thinking, and management capabilities.
New directors will participate in orientation, strategic planning, portfolio planning, and monthly Board meetings. During the month, they may also assist Committee Chairs in steering their events. It is desirable for directors to attend some of the event functions, particularly under their portfolio, such as CEGA Technical Luncheons, Networking Events, and Conferences.
Directors are also expected to contribute to the promotion of CEGA membership and encourage members to volunteer.
