TIME for BOARD of DIRECTORS NOMINATIONS
Posted by Tom Archer on August 2, 2018, 2:29 pm
The by-laws of the L.C. Smith Collectors Association call for the selection, or reaffirmation of two to three life members to serve on the LCSCA Board of Directors each year; with the election process to take place every fall. As background for new LCSCA members who will be voting to fill these leadership positions the first time, the LCSCA Board of Directors is composed of seven (7) members with one of those members being chosen to serve as Executive Director. Each Board member is elected to serve a three (3) year term; and each year three (3) Board member terms expire (except every third year when only two (2) member terms expire) and become open positions to be filled by a majority vote of the membership at large. The qualifications required to become a member of the LC Smith Board of Directors are very basic. To be eligible to qualify for nomination the applicant must first of all be a Life Member of the LCSCA, and in good standing. Secondly, and perhaps the most important qualification, the applicant must possess a strong and sincere desire to serve the Organization and its membership to the best of his/her ability. And lastly, that individual must agree to attend the Annual LCSCA Members Meeting unless prohibited by health, or unavoidable circumstance.
The LCSCA is presently blessed with a large contingent of Life Members, and members who have much to contribute; therefore we have no shortage of individuals who meet the Organization's primary qualification standard. However, we do have an extreme shortage of Life Members who are willing to serve; so I'm reaching out to all LCSCA Life Members with a sincere request that you seriously consider serving the Organization as a member of our Board of Directors. Your service is strongly encouraged; and although there will be no monetary compensation, you'll be richly rewarded by the warm smiles and words of gratitude from the members you meet and serve. All interested members are encouraged to call (706/254-8350), or email me directly(firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll happily discuss with you what is involved in these leadership roles; so please don't hesitate and express your interest NOW! And for those of you who have even the remotest interest, yet have some reservation or uncertainty, please allow me to personally attest that being a Board Member is a tremendously rewarding and fun experience; and a decision you'd not regret.
