In a Feb. 26 news announcement, RESNA said, “The primary requirement for serving as a member or officer of the Board of Directors is that the candidate must be a RESNA member in good standing for a period of three years immediately preceding their nomination. [While] board candidates have a history of participation in and contribution to RESNA organizational activities (e.g., SIGs, PSGs, Committees, Boards, and task forces), including having served in some leadership capacities, it is not required. There may be instances where candidates without extensive organizational experience are in a position to make an important contribution as a Board Member due to their particular background, skills, or contributions to the field or to other organizations.”
