The HRB has four seats open for its upcoming election. If you are interested in participating, please send a short candidate statement to firstname.lastname@example.org. The statement should include brief information about yourself and your reasons for volunteering on the HRB. Statements should be received no later than 9:00am on Tuesday, January 31st, 2017. Voting will take place in late February, and those elected will be seated at the Tuesday, March 7, 2016 HRB meeting.
Answers to a few FAQs:
(1) HRB meets from 4pm to ~6pm, on the first Tuesday of each month, at the community center. Some discussion is conducted by email between meetings.
(2) HRB has seven members — six serve staggered 2 year terms. The University has the option of choosing the 7th member, who serves a 1 year term. The University has agreed to let this be the resident who places 4th in the election. Consequently 4 of the 7 seats are open for election each year.
