Nominating Committee update
The composition of the Nominating Committee was approved by the UMRA Board in February. The members are:
Frank Cerra, past president, email@example.com
Ron Matross, president-elect, firstname.lastname@example.org
John Bantle, current board member, email@example.com
Brad Clary, firstname.lastname@example.org
Suzanne Bardouche, email@example.com
Vicki Field, firstname.lastname@example.org
The following are up for election or re-election: three board members, each for a three-year term (2022–25, renewable); treasurer and secretary, each for a one-year term (renewable); and president-elect, for a one-year term followed by one year each as president and past president. We need a strong slate of candidates to continue the work of UMRA.
This is an annual process that calls for the committee to consider nominations and then make recommendations to the UMRA Executive Committee and Board at their March meetings. The membership will vote on the slate of candidates in May.
—Frank B. Cerra, MD, UMRA past president and Nominating Committee chair
