SVPI Seeks Board Nominations
Partners—Are you interested in deepening your involvement with SVP to the network-wide level? Do you know a Partner who might be? If either answer is yes, consider a nomination to the SVPI Board of Directors. Our own Mary Bright and Kevin Shaw are current members. Here are some highlights from SVPI’s memo announcing the openings:
Our network of local SVPs has many strong individuals whose talents would contribute to the overall strength of the network, and we’d like your help in identifying them. SVPI is seeking at least three individuals to join its dynamic board and be part of taking this extraordinary network to the next level.
SVPI is the membership organization for the Social Venture Partners network, now numbering some 2100 partners at 25 SVPs in the USA, Canada and Japan. SVPI‘s singular focus: to deepen the transformational work of SVP with program and infrastructure support to unleash our greatest potential.
Directors of SVPI contribute to a board committed to doing for the Social Venture Partners network what we do for nonprofits: build for the future; increase the network’s capacity; and ultimately, strengthen individual giving and civic engagement in our communities.
SVPI’s board recently adopted a new strategic plan, which prioritizes: Innovation, Collaboration, Leadership, Impact, Telling the SVP Story, and Growth and Sustainability of the network.
SVPI is particularly interested in receiving nominations from individuals with skills and experience in the following areas, but all strong candidates will be considered:
The new directors would be elected in October 2011 and participate in guiding the strategic direction of SVPI. Directors are elected for a three-year term and are eligible for re-election for an additional three year term.
Nominations are due by the close of business on July 29. The full nomination procedure is outlined in SVPI’s memo (link requires Intranet login). Contact Linda if you would like the form emailed to you or if you are interested in being nominated by CSVP.
