Nominating Committee Formed

A nominating committee has been formed to review the job descriptions of elected CSA officers and to develop recommendations for restructuring officer assignments in order to balance tasks and to create offices that are manageable in terms of time and task expectations.  Committee members include Sandy Corless, Dennis Chamberlain, Rick Snow, Dave Sabo, Ric Speed, Ron Klimek and Ken Duckert.

Work has begun and initial restructuring recommendations have been developed. Work has also begun on identifying individuals for the committee to consider nominating for vacant positions.

The offices of president and treasurer are expected to be vacant and because of the restructuring recommendations being considered, the position of vice president vacancy will also be vacant.  Tasks will be added to this position and Amy Ditto, the current vice president, having just opened the Ghostwolf Gallery in Old Town, will be unable to continue in the position.  She will, however,  continue to provide leadership in our social media activities.  

At this time Diane Cutter has offered to serve as president, with Glen Smith volunteering to serve as vice president and chairperson of CAST.  Both individuals will serve for the next two years. In addition, Tammy Meyer, who is site supervisor at the Corrales Senior Center has volunteered to serve as treasurer and is working with Ron Klimek to work on the details of a smooth transition..The nominating committee wants to consider all those individuals who are interested in serving in a leadership role and invites all interested members to contact them to discuss the time and task responsibilities for these jobs.  Contact information for committee members is listed below.

It is clear we want strong leaders for our organization.  Being a new member is not disqualifying. We are looking for people with good administrative and listening skills, computer proficiency, good energy and organization, and the ability to work collaboratively.  We expect that all new officers will get strong support from the rest of the Board of Directors and past officers.  No one will work in isolation

We have a diverse and highly talented membership.  We are a very special organization and working in a leadership role is very rewarding. A lot is happening in Corrales with regard to the art and cultural scene. This is a great time to be a part of that change.

The committee is working on a short timeline and needs to hear from interested individuals.  Please consider becoming part of the leadership team.
