The nominations process for positions on the Executive Committee, the Governing Board, and the Nominations Board:
The Obesity Society identifies potential nominees for all elected positions by three avenues:
1. Proposed by a colleague
2. Proposed by self
3. TOS Nominations Board
All proposed candidates will be discussed by the Nominations Board, who makes the recommendation to Executive Committee for the individuals to be included on the election ballot. A proposal for nomination does not guarantee that the proposed candidate will be on the election ballot. The Nominations Board must balance several factors when identifying candidates, including the overall quality of and support for the candidate; the candidate’s past TOS involvement; and strategic initiatives of the organization.
Proposed Nomination Instructions (colleague or self):
If a colleague is being proposed, verify with the person you are proposing that they have an interest in serving, and ask them to provide the below items. These are the same items needed if a self-nomination is proposed. Items needed:
• Nomination Proposal Form
• Position for which one is applying
• Complete CV for the proposed candidate
• 3 letters of support
Submitting the Nomination
All nominations should be submitted by email to [email protected] indicating in the subject line the name of the nominee and the position of interest.
