SFMA Board of Directors – Express Your Interest Today

SFMA relies on its dedicated membership base to lead the association through its committee system and its Board of Directors. Service on the SFMA Board of Directors provides an important governance mechanism to ensure that SFMA remains true to its mission and that the organization is financially solvent.

The SFMA Nominating Committee invites interested members to submit through an interest form. The process is meticulous, governed by SOP and the SFMA Bylaws. It begins with inviting voting members to indicate interest, reviewing applications against a metric that includes prior service to the association or industry, regionality, membership category, leadership qualifications and more. The Committee, which is made up of members representing every segment of membership, develops the slate and presents it to the membership for an electronic vote in November. The new Board is introduced and takes office at the annual conference in January. For a detailed review of the process, click here.
