2018 SERFA Board Election Nomination Process

We have started the process for the 2018 SERFA Board of Directors election. We have one seat open for election in the spring of 2018 for a term that will run from May 2018 to May 2021. The nominating committee of the current SERFA Board is issuing a call for candidates.

Any SERFA member interested in standing for this seat should contact Nominating Committee chair Roberta Schultz no later than December 31, 2017. The Nominating Committee will confirm the interested party's willingness to serve and his/her qualifications, and obtain a short platform statement from potential candidates.

On February 17, 2018, Folk Alliance International (FAI) will send all SERFA members notice of the official slate of candidates. At that time, our bylaws provide for members to nominate themselves by acquiring 10 letters of support from other members. You can nominate yourself by completing FAI's SERFA Candidate Submission Form. It provides easy verification of SERFA membership and streamlines our election process. Nominations must be received by FAI by March 17. 

FAI will run our election in the required timeline of April 18 - May 14. We are looking forward to your participation in the process.
