Conestoga Youth Wrestling Association, a non-member non-profit corporation formed under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will be holding its annual meeting of its Board of Directors in August 2016.
Under the bylaws of CYWA, Directors of the organization will be chosen by the current Board of Directors during the annual meeting. Following the annual meeting the new Board will choose officers for the following year. There are multiple Director positions to be filled at the annual meeting and the officer positions to be filled are President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. An individual may be both a Director and an officer but an officer does not have to also be a Director.
There are no specific required qualifications to hold either Director or officer positions, for example one need not live within the T/E School District or have a child or other relation registered in the program. Any person wishing to be considered for service as a Director or officer of CYWA must apply by August 10, 2016 by email sent to current Secretary Lauren Allred at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your email should state whether you are nominating yourself to be a Director and whether you are nominating yourself for a particular office, and should include the following contact information: Name, home address, preferred email address, home telephone number and cellphone number. Selection of Directors and of officers will be based upon the general criteria of what personal qualifications the individual can bring to the position or positions, that is what experience, knowledge, and skills will you be able to contribute to the governance and operation of Conestoga Youth Wrestling Association. Examples include prior experience as a volunteer with CYWA or another youth wrestling program or a youth program in another sport; skills in accounting, legal or business relevant to operation of non-profit youth sports; and any other experience or skill you think is relevant to performance of the duties of Director or office being applied for. Your application need not be in any particular format whether that be a resume or narrative statement. Do not assume that the current Directors know you or your qualifications for selection.
