A vacancy has opened for USPA's North Central Regional Director. The regional director is one of 22 board members and serves the membership needs within the region, comprised of North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. A full list of regional director responsibilities is in Section 1-4 of the USPA Governance Manual.
USPA's by-laws (Article III, Section 5 in the Governance Manual) provide for filling the vacancy by either a special election or by nomination and election by the board of directors. USPA's board intends to elect a successor at the upcoming board meeting February 28-March 2 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Any USPA member in good standing who resides in the North Central Region and has an interest in serving as the North Central Regional Director may contact any current board member to secure a nomination. (All board members and their contact information are listed in the front of every issue of Parachutist and on the USPA website.) At the board meeting, nominations will be made, and then the board will vote. A nominee's attendance at the board meeting is not required. However, if a nominee is in attendance and is elected, that person may immediately participate in the rest of the meeting as a member of the board.
