SHAPE America Seeks Candidates for the Board of Directors

 

SHAPE America is committed to advancing equity, diversity and inclusion in the field of health and physical education and invite new and diverse voices to join us in these efforts as members of the SHAPE America national governing board!

The Nominations Committee seeks candidates for a 2020 SHAPE America president-elect and three new at-large members for the Board of Directors. Each position is a three-year term.

The Board of Directors is the governing body of SHAPE America and has supervision and oversight of the business, property, finances, and the affairs of the association. The Board is composed of eleven professional members including the president, past president, and the president-elect.

SHAPE America is seeking the best possible candidates for these positions and we encourage you to view the eligibility requirements and applications posted here. Each nominee will participate in an online interview with the Nomination Committee as part of the candidate selection process. All candidate application materials must be received electronically on or before October 31, 2019.

SHAPE America strives to create an inclusive environment that welcomes and values the diversity of the health and physical education community. We foster fairness, equity, and inclusion to create a society where everyone is treated with respect and dignity. Studies have shown that women and people of color are less likely to apply for jobs or leadership positions unless they meet every one of the qualifications listed. We are most interested in finding the best candidates for the Board of Directors, and encourage you to contact SHAPE America to discuss your application further, if you are unsure whether you meet the qualifications.

We need your voice so consider nominating yourself or a colleague today!
