After we announced position openings on March 7, five (5) people applied for Member at Large, one (1) person applied for treasurer, and no one has applied for Secretary or Chairperson of the Bylaws Committee. Fortunately, a goodwill person stepped up to lead the Conference Planning Committee as a chairperson.
The current vacant positions are as follows: Secretary, Treasurer, and Member at-Large. In an important effort to revamp and shift our organization towards a common vision, we hope that a seasoned volunteer with knowledge to find within its heart and volunteer to lead the Bylaws Committee.
As we’re approaching the deadline for the board fill-in, we’ve decided to extend the deadline to April 7 at 11:59 pm. If you’re interested in applying for a board seat, please fill out the form: www.jewishdeafcongress.org/application. In the event no one is interested in filling the board, we’re left with no choice but to dissolve the organization and distribute the funds upon the board vote.
At this point, if you ask what you can do? We need YOU to step up and apply for a board seat.
