How does the Nomination Advisory Committee (NAC) nominate candidates for the Board of Directors?

  1. The NAC committee — with members of the SVN Board — develops a list of potential board members thru interviews with each candidate and NAC committee discussions (candidates are selected based on their skills and needs of the organization.) 
  2. The list is vetted by the board of directors and a final list of candidates are interviewed by the current board members.
  3. Members of the SVN board and SVN ED convey to the NAC committee the outcome of their interviews and their recommendations.
  4. 4) The SVN board will make the formal offers to candidates to join the board of directors Two board members serve on the NAC.
