2021-22 Board of Directors Call for Nominations
The EnglishUSA Board of Directors focuses on the short- and long-term goals and opportunities that serve the needs of the Association, its members and the profession. Board members embody excellence and adhere to the highest standard of professional and ethical conduct in all aspects of guidance, decision-making, and leadership of the Association. They also play a key role in ensuring policies, procedures, and communications reflect and support EnglishUSA’s vision and mission.
As you may already know, board service can be extremely rewarding. Typically, board members find the experience to expand their network, to expand their understanding of the field and their own perspective, to support initiatives that resonate with them, to challenge them intellectually and develop them professionally, and to grow their personal brand.
Ideal nominees will have demonstrated extensive experience and service in the field, have experience in organizational governance and leadership, and have demonstrated success in policy and strategy development and execution.
The EnglishUSA Board of Directors is a mission-driven, strategic-focused body. Strategic priorities for the upcoming 3-5 years include: adapting the newly adopted governance structure for efficiency/effectiveness, revamping a 3-5 year strategic plan, continuing to develop impactful and relevant programs/services to serve the needs of members, and continuing to increase awareness of the EnglishUSA brand globally.
