Help Select 2018 League Board of Directors

Do you want to have an important role in the selection of new members for the 2018 League of Minnesota Cities (LMC) Board of Directors? If so, apply by June 1 to be part of the Nominating Committee that interviews and recommends Board candidates.

The Nominating Committee is made up of eight to 12 individuals, consisting of both elected and appointed city officials, from throughout the state. Any city official interested in serving is encouraged to apply. LMC President Jo Emerson, mayor of White Bear Lake, will choose committee appointees by June 4. (The League is also accepting applications for the Board of Directors.)

Important dates

Once the Nominating Committee has been selected and members have been notified, there will be an hour-long conference call to provide information on the selection process and guidelines for conducting the board candidate interviews, deliberations, and decision-making steps. The call is scheduled for June 13, 11:00 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The committee will convene on the morning of June 20 at the LMC Annual Conference in St. Cloud, and will interview candidates for the positions of president, first vice president, second vice president, and three director positions. The committee’s recommendations will then be presented to the entire League membership at the Annual Conference during the annual business meeting on June 21.

The League reimburses Nominating Committee members for expenses incurred for serving on this committee.

Applying for the committee

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

City officials interested in serving on the Nominating Committee should contact Kellie Sundheim, LMC, by June 1 at (651) 281-1214, (800) 925-1122 or
