Open Board Positions

Important Leadership Opportunities in our League.

Due to a recent departure on our Board, we have a new leadership opportunity.

Recently Susan Marlette has decided to step down from her role of President Elect on our board effective immediately.  We would like to thank Susan for her leadership and contributions to our Junior League while in her role.  

This opens up the board position of President for 201 7-2018 year.

The Nominating Committee is also still seeking Board nominations for the 2017-2018 slate.  Important deadline extended to March 17, 2017!

The Nominating Committee is currently slating the 2017-2018 Board of Directors.  As part of our continued Board and Leadership development, we are putting a call out for those interested in participating on the Board.  If you are interested in serving on next year’s Board in any role, please make it known in writing to Kathy Ozimek, Nominating Director by Friday March 17, 2017.  

For members interested in being President and President Elect (PE) of the Junior League of Schenectady and Saratoga Counties, the Nominating Committee would like to know some information about you and your reasons for wanting to lead the League.  Upon receipt of President or PE interest, the questions will be sent to you. 

Please answer the statements & questions below and e-mail them to the Nominating Committee by Friday March 17, 2017 at 5pm.  The answers can be in a letter, essay, resume, or whatever format fits you best.  In addition, if anyone would like to nominate someone for consideration, please do so so we can contact them and request the information from them.  Thank you.
