DPLA Nominating Committee Looking For Board Candidate Recommendations

From the Digital Public Library of America Blog:

The DPLA Nominating Committee was established by the DPLA Board of Directors during a December 2012 meeting to recommend two additional members for the DPLA Board of Directors. The Nominating Committee is composed of the following individuals:

Cathy Casserly, DPLA Board of Directors (Treasurer)
Luis Herrera, DPLA Board of Directors

The purpose of the DPLA Nominating Committee is to identify a set of qualified candidates, to be elected by the current Board of Directors, for two DPLA Board positions. The committee’s guiding principle is to propose two qualified and professionally diverse individuals who will seek to fulfill the DPLA’s strategic goal of creating a free and open national digital library resource.

The Board of Directors guiding terms and principles, including the key responsibilities required of new Directors, can be found here. The Nominating Committee encourages you to share the document with your networks and anyone interested in serving.

The last day to submit recommendations is Friday, February 22 at 5:00 PM EST.
