Nominating Process

Self-nominations are encouraged and welcome, but if you know a current member that would be an excellent board candidate, please nominate that person. It’s perfectly acceptable to nominate more than one individual for any of the board positions. If you have an interest in more than one position, please indicate that on the application. Board Nominations are to be received no later than Friday, May 10, 2024.

Upon receipt of all nominations, applications will be reviewed by the Nominating Committee and all candidates will be scheduled for interviews. The Committee will recommend one candidate per position on a slate of candidates to be presented to the Membership for review in July. If no positions are contested, the slate will be ratified, submitted to MPI Global and duly elected candidates will take office on January 1, 2025.

In preparation for their service, prior to assuming board positions in January, all directors will be asked to participate in a transition/orientation meeting between the current position holder and themselves, the virtual Chapter Leadership Summit and MPI-HAC’s Annual Retreat – typically a 2-day retreat held in October/November.
