What is the Nominating Committee?

Beginning in 2010, the OAUG Board of Directors began implementing a Nominating Committee for the election of its board of directors. Many professional associations and users groups rely on a similar model for analysis and planning and to ensure that the combined skill set of its board is strategically positioned to address the challenges and opportunities that the association faces.

The Nominating Committee for the election of the 2018 OAUG Board of Directors will not replace the standard election of candidates at large but, rather, is intended to augment the process. All other candidates on the ballot will be nominated by the membership. The Nominating Committee identified, interviewed and recommended two qualified individuals to include on the ballot as a slate.
