Letter from the Nomination Committee Chair
Dear TSPRA Colleagues,
As members of the Texas School Public Relations Association, we are an incredible diverse group of public relations professionals who are blessed to work in the best industry in the country. Together we are skilled writers and creative photographers; tireless advocates and trusted advisors, public servants and servant leaders. And most importantly, we are story tellers. Together we tell the stories that need to be told.
Now it is time to tell your story, and consider nominating yourself or a colleague for a leadership position within TSPRA – your professional organization. TSPRA has grown and adapted to meet our needs as members over the last 55+ years, and we need your voice to help chart our future course. The process is simple and the form is online.
Here are two important deadlines:
• Tuesday, September 4, 2018: Completed online nomination forms must be received by the TSPRA state office no later than 4:00 p.m. You will receive an email confirming the submission.
• Monday, September 17, 2018: To be eligible, a person must be a professional member in good standing with dues paid by September 17, 2018.
Nominees must meet all the membership requirements as defined by the bylaws, agree to attend three Executive Committee meetings yearly and should have the support of their district or organization.
Please note, TSPRA's Standing Rules state that each area shall have no more than two vice presidents. Since At Large Vice President Positions 2 and 3 are currently held by members from the Gulf Coast and Houston/Beaumont areas, no one from these areas would be eligible to serve as At-Large Vice President Position 1.
Nominations are needed for:
• Area Vice Presidents & At-Large Vice President (Position 1)
East Texas (Regions 6, 7 & 8)
West Central (Regions 12, 14 & 15)
Central (Region 13)
Northwest (Regions 16 & 17)
At-Large Position 1
In accordance with our bylaws, the Nominating Committee will meet on Thursday, September 27, 2018, in Austin to select a slate of officers. Electronic ballots will be sent to members who are eligible to vote on November 7 and the results will be announced in December.
I am very humbled to serve as President-Elect and then as President of this incredible organization that has given so much to me. I know that like me, others have the talents, abilities, and desire to serve. We all have stories to tell. It’s time to let your voice be heard. I hope you will consider stepping up or encouraging a fellow member by nominating someone who has the heart to serve our organization.Sincerely,
Monica Faulkenbery, APR
