Call for Nominations: Board of Directors

Call for Nominations: Board of Directors

The Governance and Nominations Committee of the Fulbright Association Board of Directors is seeking nominations of highly qualified individuals to serve on the Board. A limited number of openings are available for the three-year term beginning January 1, 2023.

Nominees should have a demonstrated ability to bring experience, resources and energy to the FA mission: to continue and extend the Fulbright tradition of education, advocacy and service.

Nominations, including self-nominations, must include a C.V. with a cover letter describing the attributes that best qualify this individual for consideration to serve.  These should include:

  • demonstrated commitment to international education and peace
  • past/current relationship to the Fulbright program (i.e. alumni, friend, supporter)
  • specific skills sets, i.e. finance, law, marketing, fund raising
  • examples of influence and networking
  • previous engagement with non-profit organizations and/or board service

The Board of Directors is a working board with active committees.  At a minimum, directors are expected to:

  • Maintain active membership in the Association
  • Contribute generously to annual fund raising (minimum $1500)
  • Attend 2-3 board meetings per year (at least 2 in-person)
  • Serve on at least one committee (most meetings scheduled on zoom)
  • Attend annual conference and Prize Ceremony

We are fortunate to enjoy high interest in this call for nominations each year.  The Governance & Nominations Committee will follow up with nominees who possess the skills and experience we are seeking to actively deepen and broaden the work of the Association.

Please email nomination submissions to DeDe Long, Chair of the Governance and Nominations Committee, at board@fulbright.org no later than June 1, 2022.
