BGHIMSS Chapter Elections

Message from our Chapter Election Committee

 

Dear Kentucky Bluegrass HIMSS Member,

 

We are excited to announce the kickoff of the Kentucky HIMSS election process for our 2020-2021 Board Year! We host annual elections for all open positions on our Chapter Board, each of which is held for a 2-year term. As volunteers are core to the success of KY HIMSS, we ask you to please consider volunteering to a board role - many have found helping to lead our organization as both personally and professionally rewarding.

 

We would like to ask qualified candidates to step forward and self-nominate or recommend another candidate before nominations close on Sunday, April 26th. If you are interested in learning more about our board positions or would like more insight before being ready to commit to being on the ballot, please reach out to a member of the Election Committee, listed at the end of this message.

 

Below are the open roles for which will be holding elections from May 4th to May 17th. For the roles that have a “-Elect” after them, these are roles for which the successful candidate will spend the first year of their term “learning” the role and initiating their contribute, and the second role of their term leading as Chair of the role, and “teaching” the role to their elected successor.
