The CCSAA is seeking nominations of candidates to stand for election to the Cross Country Ski Areas Association Board of Directors representing the Ski Area, Supplier and Retailer membership levels. Member engagement is critical to the success of Cross Country Ski Areas Association, and the Board relies upon your recommendations for strong candidates. Even if you represent a different category of membership, please consider colleagues you know at other member levels.
Only Cross Country Ski Areas Association members representatives may submit nominations. All Member Representatives are strongly encouraged to consult with all interested colleagues within their organization to solicit recommendations for nominees. Self-nominations are also welcome if you represent a member institution.
To submit nominations, send names and the institutional affiliation for each, indicating whether or not you have contacted the nominee, so that a member of the nominating committee can follow up with the nominee accordingly to confirm interest. Self-nominees can simply indicate their interest.
Nominations must be received by 5:00 p.m. EDT Friday, April 3, but are welcome anytime. They should be sent to Cross Country Ski Areas Association Executive Director Reese Brown who will collect nominations on behalf of the Nominating Committee. The Nominating Committee will review all nominations and confirm a slate of nominees with the current Governance Board. An election ballot will be circulated to member institutions in mid-May.
Nominees must be currently employed by a Cross Country Ski Areas Association member organization. Nominees should have administrative and fiscal oversight experience, characteristics typical of director or associate director level staff. The Governance Board is charged with providing oversight for the Cross Country Ski Areas Association application and community, including fiscal oversight, the approval of development priorities, and oversight of the Technical and User Advisory councils.
To meet the needs of a broad and diverse membership in a balanced and equitable way, the Governance Board is composed of twelve members, including:
- 9 Ski Area Members
- 2 Supplier Members
- 1 Retailer Member
- 1 Ex Officio Member
