SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON NOMINATIONS In early April, incumbent direc- tors from each service will select primary and alternate repre- sentatives from their services for election to the nominating committee. Neither incumbent directors nor association staff members may serve on the committee.


BYLAW REQUIREMENTS There are 36 directors on the board of the association: eight Army, eight Navy, eight Air Force, three Marine Corps, two Coast Guard, one Public Health Service, one NOAA, and five at- large (without regard to service


affiliation). Q Directors must be active duty, Reserve, National Guard, retired, or former uniformed service officers, or surviving spouses of such officers, and members of


■■


the association. Q Directors hold office for six


years. Q Each director represents the total association and not a re-


■■ ■■


gional or service constituency. Q The board directs and controls the business management and affairs of the association and has the authority to approve con- tracts, incur liabilities, expend funds, and attend to other asso- ciation matters.

ANY QUESTIONS? Email boardapps@ moaa.org or call (800) 234- MOAA (6622), ext. 167. If you call after hours, leave a voice mail message that includes the spelling of your first and last name, your phone number, and your MOAA member num- ber (if known).


There are no grade or other


limitations on the number of offi- cers who may serve as directors at any one time. Efforts are made to obtain the best-qualified members from within the mem- bership of the association.


SERVICE ON THE BOARD Directors serve one six-year term and discharge their governance responsibilities primarily by participating in the three board meetings convened each year. Each board meeting includes meetings of the vari- ous standing committees and requires about one and a half days, not including travel. A director should be able to


devote two to three weeks each year to MOAA matters, including travel, board and committee meetings, and participation in other events such as the annual Council Presidents’ Seminar, council and chapter leadership workshops, and individual visits to councils and chapters. A director must refrain from


activities that could reasonably be viewed as conflicting with or possibly influencing the direc- tor’s judgment regarding his or her responsibilities to MOAA. Directors receive no compen-


sation, but they are reimbursed for MOAA-related travel, lodging, and meals.
