2008 Nominations Sought For OFSOA Board

The two-year term positions of President, Secretary, Region 1, Region 2, and Region 3 will be up for election at the 2008 conference in October. Serving on the board is a great experience and with the upcoming elections, members are encouraged to think about pursing a board position.

There are four scheduled board meetings each year (first part of the year, spring workshop, July, and at fall conference). The commitment of attending meetings, workshops, and conference can take time away from your daily duties. However serving as a board member is very rewarding. Those interested are encouraged to review the by-laws to gain a full understanding of the process. The nomination form must be completed and signed by your supervisor, and a letter from your agency indicating their support is also required.

According to the OFOSA By-Laws, the duties of the upcoming positions include:

President - to preside over the meetings of the organization; to be the official representative of the organization, and perform other duties as are required of the presiding officer.

Secretary – to keep minutes of the proceedings of the organization and the executive board, to attend to all communication pertaining to the organization; and perform all such other duties as are incidental to this office and/or may be required by the president.

Region Representative - to contact members in their regions and correlate information; to act as a liaison between the members of their area and the executive board; to work with the education committee in coordinating regional workshops and training seminars to be conducted in their areas.

Anyone interested in pursuing a board position can contact Past President Elaine Parrott, eparrott@jeffersonfire.org or call at 541-327-2822, who is serving as chair of the Nominations Committee.
