Board Nominees will be assessed based on the following guidance letter:

Completed nominee questionnaires must be submitted before the Call for Nominations closes at 7:00 PM ET on Monday, 24 June. In addition, Board nominees must digitally sign a release form allowing an independent third party to conduct a background check. Nominees who do not complete the required steps will not be eligible for consideration.

An independent, third-party vendor evaluates and assesses all nominees based on the answers provided in the nomination questionnaire and potential interviews of the nominee. Nominees for the Board will all be interviewed, subject to background checks, and further evaluated against criteria set in the guidance letter provided by the Board of Trustees.

The Nomination Committee will provide an Initial Slate of Candidates based on these assessments, which will be announced on Tuesday, 10 September. The only nominees not included on this initial slate will be individuals who were classified as “Unable to Qualify” based on the evaluation criteria.
