Nominations for Directors & Officers
Pursuant to the Amended and Restated Bylaws, GALLOP has formed a Nominating Committee to propose candidates for open director and officer positions. Members of the Nominating Committee are:
Hon. Ann Butchart (First Judicial District)
Amanda Dougherty (Klehr Harrison)
D. Deone Powell (Philadelphia Fight)
Julie Chovanes (Chovanes Law LLC)
Larry Felzer (Senior Law Center)
Thomas Ude, Jr. (Mazzoni Center)
James Vandermark (White and Williams)
The duty of the Nominating Committee is to find the best candidate for each open director and officer position. Open positions for 2020 include four officer positions (Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary), six director positions of terms between 1 and 3 years, and a Law Student Liaison. All positions are voting members of GALLOP’s Board. The Bylaws provide additional information about the obligations and roles for these positions.
The Nominating Committee will select candidates for the open positions and present the proposed candidates to GALLOP’s Board for approval. GALLOP’s Board may approve more than one candidate for any open position. A ballot of approved candidates will then be presented to the general members for elections to be held in November.
The Nominating Committee is requesting recommendations for candidates for the open director and officer positions. If you are interested in serving in one of these positions or would like to nominate someone, you may do so by using the form below. Nominees will be asked to submit a brief vision statement for GALLOP.
Nominations will be accepted until 4:00 pm on September 13, 2019.
