Nomination Solicitation Information
Summary of Information
NEWW is now accepting nominations for the 2003 NEWW Board of Director's elections. The Board of Directors is the governing body of NEWW.
Participation in the nominating process and elections for the 2003 Board are open to all NEWW members. If you are not yet a member of NEWW, please complete our membership sign up form located on NEWW-Polska's web page (http://www.neww.org.pl) and send your membership dues, when applicable, to the Washington, D.C. NEWW office prior to voting.
Over the last eleven years, NEWW has grown into a large network of feminist activists and organizations in the US and the CEE/NIS. NEWW's mission is to support the growth of grassroots women's movements in the CEE/NIS through educational and informational exchanges, dialogue, and networking.
2002 and 2003 projects included the NEWW Legal Fellowship Program and the Economic and Social Policy Fellowship Program, the Gender Policy Conference, NEWW On-line, the Book and Journal Project, and informal consultations and support to women's organizations throughout the CEE/NIS region. NEWW works closely with members of the international donor community, governmental and intra-governmental organizations and other non-profits focused on women's issues in the CEE/NIS.
NEWW's Board of Directors is comprised of 17 members, with 2/3 of its members from CEE/NIS and 1/3 from the U.S. NEWW's board is a mix of elected and appointed members. 10 members are elected by the current NEWW membership and 7 are appointed by the newly elected Board.
We are asking all NEWW members to submit names of those women whom you would like to nominate to the NEWW Board by November 14, 2003. This is an opportunity to bring your representatives into the decision-making process of our organization.
Nominations should be sent to Erin Barclay at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line, please type "Nominations" - this will allow us to separate Board nominations from general email. You may make up to five nominations. Please include contact information and a one-paragraph bio and one other reference for each nominee in your email.
Five positions on NEWW's Board are open. The following current Board members can be re-nominated to serve another three-year term on NEWW's Board. If not reelected these Board members will rotate off:
Continuing NEWW Board Members include:
This year NEWW's Board will add 4 women from CEE/NIS and 1 woman from the US.
Executive Directors of NEWW (Erin Barclay) and NEWW-Polska (Gosia Tarasiewicz) serve ex-officio on NEWW's Board.
There will be no pre-selection of nominees, rather the election will be open to everyone who is nominated and who accepts the nomination. Self-nominations are also acceptable.
