Nominating Wants to Hear from You!


Each year, the Nominating Committee is elected by the Membership and entrusted with responsibility for selecting a slate of candidates for the League’s governance and management positions, including the Board of Directors, Management Council Heads, Senior Management Council Heads, and the Nominating Committee. In addition, each year, the Committee selects five exemplary Active volunteers to be honored at Winter Ball. In its search for candidates, the Committee conducts comprehensive outreach, including extensive communication throughout the NYJL, and strongly encourages self-nomination for all governance and management positions.

The Nominating Committee is comprised of 17 NYJL volunteers: 15 members are elected by the membership from a double slate, while the Vice Chair is elected from a single slate and becomes Chair the following year. The Nominating Committee Chair serves on the Board of Directors, and the Vice Chair serves on the Management Council. Members of the Nominating Committee represent all areas of the NYJL: Communications, Community Program, Membership, Finance/Fundraising and Sustainers. There are also three Members-At-Large. The NYJL 2016-2017 Nominating Committee includes Allison Kellogg, Chair; Caroline Donohue, Vice Chair; and committee members Christine Flach, Karen Laudeman, Justine Schiro, Meredith Coburn, Rachel Geringer Dunn, Kelly Purcell, Rebecca Mummert Schwartz, Melissa Lesher, Elizabeth Snypes, Aileen Hanlon, Chryssi Mikus, Cristine Van Schoick, Beth Player DiCicco, Jill Ferrari, and Saundra Smith.
