Four of the 12 director-at-large seats on the 27-member KSBA Board of Directors are up for election in 2016 and now is the time for eligible local board members to put their names in the hat for the three-year terms.
KSBA President Allen Kennedy has appointed a selection committee of the board of directors to consider nominations later this fall. Under KSBA bylaws, the committee selects a candidate for each post, with the selection being ratified by the membership at the association’s annual business meeting. That will come during the 80th annual conference next February.
The four incumbents, all whom are eligible to seek a second term, are Larry Dodson of Oldham County, Dianne Mackey of Daviess County, Ramona Malone of Newport Independent and Jim See of Lawrence County.
In keeping with the association’s bylaws, any Kentucky school board member may place his or her name before the committee by completing and submitting the required Nomination Form by Nov. 13. The Nomination Form is available online here or may be requested by contacting Kathy Amburgey at Kathy.firstname.lastname@example.org or at (502)783-0078. You may return the nomination form via mail, fax or email per the instructions on the form.
The selection committee will make its recommendations based on the information in the nomination form.
· No local board member would be eligible for election to the board of directors for a term that would coincide with the term of another member of that same school board already serving on the association's board.
· A candidate for the office of director-at-large must be eligible to serve in that new office at the time the candidate places her or his name in nomination.
· The committee will report back to the membership with its recommendations in January.
Each nominee chosen by the selection committee will be provided an opportunity to make up to a three-minute acceptance speech at the business meeting.
