Help Select 2016 League Board

You can play an important role in the selection of new members of the 2016 League of Minnesota Cities (LMC) Board of Directors. Apply by May 27 to be part of the Nominating Committee that determines board candidates worthy of serving the League and its more than 850 member cities.

LMC President Steve Nasby will appoint the Nominating Committee, made up of eight to 12 city officials, by May 31. The committee will consist of both elected and appointed officials with consideration given to gender, city size, and geography. The League reimburses Nominating Committee members for expenses incurred for serving on this committee.

If you are providing a letter of reference for an individual who plans to apply for the LMC Board of Directors, we ask that you refrain from applying to be on the Nominating Committee. This will ensure that no conflicts of interest arise during the process.

For those selected to be on the committee, there will be an hour-long conference call to provide information on the Nominating Committee process and guidelines for conducting the Board candidate interviews and deliberation process. That meeting is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on June 7.

The committee will convene on June 14 at the LMC Annual Conference in St. Paul in the early morning to interview candidates for the positions of president, first vice president, second vice president, and six director positions. The committee’s recommendations will then be presented to the entire membership at the annual business meeting on June 16.

City officials interested in serving on the Nominating Committee should contact Kellie Sundheim, LMC, by May 27 at (651) 281-1214, (800) 925-1122, or ksundheim@lmc.org.
