Open Board Seat!

Posted on 09/16/2022

Become a Boardmember

From time to time, SORO NC Board seats become available between scheduled elections. According to our bylaws, open seats can be filled by majority vote of our Board (although with the exception of our Student seat, Board appointments are only in effect until the next scheduled election). Appointments also may not be made within 60 days of an election.

If you're interested in being considered for an open seat, please fill out the form below at least 10 days before our next monthly General Board meeting. Applicants definitely should attend that meeting and be prepared to answer questions from the Board.

Board Opening

  • At-Large Representative (Originally the Organizational Representative 3- Term expires 2023)
    The At-Large Representative is a Stakeholder eighteen (18) years of age or older at the time of the election. You can see the SORO NC boundaries on our Mapping SORO page.
  • Student Representative (Term expires 2023)
    The Student Representative is a Stakeholder who attends a school in the council area and who is between 14 and up to 18 years of age at the time of the election. You can see the SORO NC boundaries on our Mapping SORO page.

 

Applications for these seats must be submitted no less than 10 days before the October 27, 2022 General Board meeting (Deadline October 17, 2022 @7PM.)

 

Bear in mind that others may apply for the same seat. Don’t get discouraged. Focus on making the best case you can for your candidacy. Think about the skills you might bring to the Board. Do a little research on community issues. Try to attend a committee meeting. Read through a few past agendas to get a sense of the things we tackle. And remember, our committees are open to everyone—and they're where the real action happens.
