Board of Directors
Annual Call for Nominations
A director is expected to attend monthly board of directors meetings where they will address timely issues, establish policies, and direct the organization's assets to fulfill the goals and mission of SOHO. Each board member must have previously served on a SOHO committee for at least one year prior to board appointment, and is also required to serve on at least one committee during time on the board. There are several committees and sub-committees to choose from.
Leadership as a director includes participating at events by attending and/or in planning or working on, recruiting new members, and developing funding. In essence, each director promotes volunteerism by example, expands SOHO's assets, and works as an ambassador for the organization to the community.
Knowledge of historic preservation law and advocacy procedures is not mandatory, but sensitivity to the subject, a love of historic sites and cultural landscapes, and the willingness to learn are essential.
Volunteerism with SOHO is a good way to gain experience for a board position. If you would like to get involved as a board member but feel you are not quite ready please consider joining one of our many committees.
Nominations are accepted and encouraged year-round. Each nomination is reviewed and ratified by the current board of directors in September.
