Call for Applications:  Sovereign Lake Board of Directors

We are looking for enthusiastic dedicated individuals who want to help Sovereign Lake Nordic Club continue to offer the finest Nordic skiing anywhere (in our humble opinion). Six positions are coming due this year, so if you have the passion and interest  to be a Board member, we encourage you to put your name forward!

The main requirement to be a Board member is a commitment to Sovereign Lake, an ability to spend 8-12 hours per month on Board activities including a monthly Board meeting, and the willingness to commit to a 2-year term on the Board.  The Board makes a wide range of decisions on behalf of the club. Check out past meeting minutes to get an idea what’s involved.

The deadline is 11:59 PM on Friday, October 8th.  Nominations and applications will not be accepted after the stated deadline.

To put your name forward, please complete a brief bio (items to include are listed below) and email it to the Chair of the SLNC Election Committee – Kim Taylor. Bios will be posted on the SLNC website at least 5 days prior to the AGM.

Complete details concerning the nomination process, information about the Board and the election process are found below in this message.  If you have any questions or need further information, please contact any one of us at the emails below.
