Board member considerations

Board duties and responsibilities

Completing the Nomination Form

Any individual willing to participate and to fulfill the obligations of board service may self-nominate by completing and submitting the nomination form by July 22, 2022. The nominee need not be a member at the time of nomination but will be expected to become a member if approved. Each nominee is expected to complete the online form so that the nominating committee may consider the credentials of all candidates individually, as well as comparatively. If you have questions about the form or the nomination process, please contact nominations at nominations [at]

The nomination form is designed to help the nominee prepare and present their qualifications in a consistent manner and assures that the committee has the same information on all candidates.

The Nominations Committee will review applications through July 30, 2022, in order to fill the open seats on the board of directors for a two-year term beginning early-August 2022. The Nominations Committee will then recommend a single candidate for each open position to the board. AIGA Jacksonville members then vote on the board slate to ratify the board.

We thank you in advance for your interest in joining the AIGA Jacksonville board.

The Nomination Process

A Nominating Committee works to make sure member interests are represented, and that the AIGA Jacksonville board retains a fresh and diverse perspective. This process is open and inclusive, and anyone who completes the nomination form is considered.

The criteria for identifying the Nominating Committee of 3-5 individuals outside the current board are as follows:

  • 1 member of the prior year’s nominating committee
  • 1 member of the current board who is stepping down
  • 1-2 former members of the board (past presidents are good choices)
  • 1 non-board member who is active in AIGA and understands boards
  • The current president of the board (or president-elect) is not allowed to serve on the nominating committee to avoid the opportunity to anoint a successor
