NOTICE OF ANNUAL MEETING
SOLICITATION OF APPLICATIONS FOR POSITIONS
OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS OF THE CORPORATION
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 on July 12, 2017 at 8:00 PM at the Leon’s (1587 Russell Rd, Paoli).
Under the bylaws of CYWA, Directors of the organization to fill expired terms will be chosen by the current Board of Directors during the annual meeting. Following the annual meeting the new Board will immediately hold its first meeting and appoint officers for the following year. There are multiple Director positions to be filled at the annual meeting, and every year all of the officer positions including President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary are appointed by the new Board. An individual may be both a Director and an officer, but an officer does not have to also be a Director. The Board desires and encourages new additions to the leadership of the organization.
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 should apply by June 28, 2017 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. However, the most important qualification is simply your willingness to volunteer your time and effort to further the goals and program of CYWA. 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. If you have applied you do not need to be present at the annual meeting for your candidacy to be considered. If you have not applied you can attend and be nominated at the meeting.
