Leadership Cultivation Committee
The Leadership Cultivation Committee is established to seek out and identify members to cultivate for leadership positions in order to establish and maintain a pipeline of future association leaders that fulfill the association’s goals for diversity, inclusion, equity, and accessibility. This committee adds value by institutionalizing best practices in three areas: strategic recruitment, effective member engagement, and revitalization.
The committee shall be responsible for—
- interacting with members at all levels of the association with the intent of identifying and cultivating future leaders, in accordance with the committee’s charge;
- facilitating introductions between the identified association members and the members of the Nominating Committee in order to supply the Nominating Committee with a substantial pool of potential nominees for SLA elections; and
- encouraging association members to self-identify and volunteer for positions with committees, subcommittees, task forces, communities, other groups, and micro-volunteering opportunities.
