Run for OOIDA Board?
Time to think about it

Ever thought you'd like to be part of the OOIDA Board of Directors? All alternate board member terms expire in 2017, and now is the time to consider it.

Here's how it works. Every two years OOIDA holds an election for board alternates. Alternates are elected to two-year terms by and from the membership.

The election process begins Nov. 15 when the Nomination-Election Committee sends nomination forms to all current dues-paying members. The forms will also be available online by Nov. 16.

Members can nominate themselves or another member. In order to run, a nominee must have a minimum of five consecutive years of commercial truck driving experience and five consecutive years of active Association membership immediately before the nomination. Nominations are due by Dec. 31.

The Nomination-Election Committee will verify nominee qualification, conduct interviews, and present the ballot to the full membership. The election will be in the fall of 2016, and those elected will be seated at the 2017 spring board meeting. LL
