National Board Nominations due by January 31, 2023

The National Board is the governing body of the National Religious Vocation Conference

Nominations for the National Board are now open, and you are invited to prayerfully consider applying to serve by completing a nomination application or by nominating another NRVC member to serve on the NRVC National Board beginning in the Fall of 2023. According to the NRVC Bylaws: At its spring meeting, the National Board selects new members from those recommended to a three-year term. The Board seeks to bring skills and experience to the Board to help ensure a balance of gender, geographical, and cultural representation and to image the breadth and diversity of religious consecration in the Church through its new appointments.

The number of new members selected each year will be determined by the number of vacancies on the Board and by a need to maintain a Board of between 8 and 12 members (NRVC Bylaws). As you consider yourself or others for membership on the Board, please be mindful of the following criteria for Board membership. Board members:

  • Must be a member of NRVC with prior experience in vocation ministry.
  • Have knowledge of NRVC, its team leadership structure, and goals.
  • Should be able to represent NRVC to related organizations.
  • Provide leadership to NRVC and direction to the National Office staff regarding services, interculturality, development, finances, etc.
  • Prioritize attendance at Board meetings—two meetings a year (three days plus two travel days).
  • Have collaborative, listening, and consensus decision-making skills.
  • Should be well prepared for meetings and willing to do follow up.
  • Should be willing to be a liaison to standing committees as well as serve on ad hoc task forces.
  • Must be able to respect confidentiality.

Please feel free to contact any Board member for further information or to hear of their experience. Consider the possibility of service to NRVC and our constituents by completing a nomination form or self-nomination form by January 31, 2023. If you are nominating another NRVC member, please contact them first prior to sending in the form to make sure they are open to being nominated. The Board will interview all who are nominated by phone/ZOOM and make its selections at its spring meeting.
