The ELCA Youth Ministry Network is seeking nominations of people who are qualified and willing to serve on the Network’s Board of Directors.
The Network’s Board is responsible for the setting the vision and goals for the Network, and works with the Executive Director to live in to that vision. The Board meets face-to-face three times during the year, once in the fall, again just prior to the Extravaganza and then again in the Spring.
To carry out its work, the board of directors seeks members who are visionary, possess solid communication skills, are willing to support the mission of the network, employ critical and creative thinking, display personal humility, and model a servant’s heart.
The term of a board member lasts three years and could be renewed for one additional term. This year, there are three board “seats” that are up for election. Both Rev. Regina Goodrich and Becky Cole, who each hold one of those seats, are eligible for a second term if willing and selected. Erik Ullestad has served two full terms and is not eligible for renewal.
Nominations for the Board this year are due September 15, 2017. This year, the term for new board members will begin at the conclusion of Extravaganza 2018 in Houston.
More detailed information on the Board nomination process can be found here. Both self-nominations and nominations of others are welcomed and encouraged.

If you have further questions, please feel free to contact Tom Schwolert, Board Chairperson, or Todd Buegler, Executive Director.
