In fall 2011, the Chair of the Committee on Personnel and Nominations (CPN) met with the DivCHED Chair elect, Chair, and Secretary to make committee appointments. The new appointees were invited to serve, thank you letters were distributed to those moving off committees, and new rosters were created. This action was completed by early 2012.
This spring Marcy Towns has stepped down as Chair of CPN and I have stepped into the position. Marcy has graciously agreed to remain on the CPN committee to help ease the transition and ensure continuity. The committee has once again begun its deliberations and will present a slate for Chair-elect, one Councilor, and two Alternate Councilor spots for the Executive Committee at the San Deigo meeting in March. Again the committee will have the following materials available:
- Roster of the Board of Publication since 1985
- Roster of the Board of Trustees since 1985
- Roster of the Executive Committee since 1985
- Roster of the Chair of the Division, and the board he/she served on since 1985
- Listing of those asked to run for office or on a board in the past six years
These documents will help CPN understand where the division has been, who has been called to serve, and how to better develop broader slates. The Executive Committee will have the opportunity to discuss and approve the slate in March. I look forward to serving as Chair of CPN and I am open to any comments or questions the our general membership might have.
Cinzia Muzzi, Chair
