CUE Board Nominations



(Not all interested candidates may end up being asked to submit an application or appear on the final ballot, but all are welcome to express interest.)

Nomination Process

The nomination process is simple.

  1. The CUE Nominating Committee will review* all letters of interest received by the October 31, 2019 5:00 p.m. PST deadline and will present a first draft ballot to the CUE Board of Directors for approval at their November 6, 2019 meeting.
  2. Prospective board candidates will be asked to submit a full application by 12:00 p.m. PT on December 19, 2019.
  3. The Nominating Committee will review the applications and create a proposed slate of candidates.
  4. The current CUE Board will vote to approve the ballot at their January 15, 2020 meeting. Final candidates will be informed of the Board’s decision by January 21, 2020.

* The committee will be screening for candidates who know CUE and those who will balance the skills and experience of present board members with those of prospective candidates to create the most effective CUE Board to address current strategic objectives.
