- The Nominating Committee interviews only qualified candidates as presented by the Credentialing Committee. During the interviews, the Facilitator is responsible for asking the questions to the candidates. All interviews will occur within the two (2) business days (Monday-Friday) prior to the April Board of Directors meeting (if the Board of Directors does not meet in April, action will coincide with the next scheduled meeting).
- After all interviews have been completed, the Nominating Committee creates a scorecard on each candidate to determine if the candidate is “recommended” or “not recommended.” There can be more or less recommended candidates than the number of open positions.
- The Nominating Committee and all interviewed candidates are invited to attend the April Board of Directors meeting. The Nominating Committee Facilitator will serve as the spokesperson at the April Board of Directors meeting to provide rationale for the committee’s recommendations. Note: If the Board of Directors does not meet in April, actions will coincide with the next scheduled meeting.
