Members Nominating Committee

The Members Nominating Committee seeks nominations of individuals in the community to serve on the UCAR Board of Trustees, PACUR, and Membership Committees, as well as the Members Nominating Committee itself. This committee is responsible for presenting candidates at the Annual Members Meeting to be voted on by the Member Representatives.

Under the UCAR bylaws, the Members Nominating Committee is elected from among the Member Representatives only. The committee must include at least one Member Representative who is not a Trustee, and one Institutional Trustee, who is appointed by the Board of Trustees. The committee's operating procedures can be found here.
