RE:                 INDEPENDENT DIRECTOR PROCESS          



USA Taekwondo’s newly elected Transitional Board of Directors met on Monday, September 3, 2012, and discussed the process to select the two (2) open Independent Director positions.  The purpose of this memorandum is to provide an update on that process including a revised soft deadline to submit candidate applications by Friday, September 14 (end of day).  A link to the application document can be found here.  This is a “soft” deadline because the Board will evaluate candidates until it finds the right mix of skill set and experience, however, their review of candidates will likely begin shortly after September 14th.


With respect to the process, the Board of Directors is currently conducting an internal analysis of the skills and passions of the seated Board members.  Once that process is complete, the Board will evaluate any gaps in their collective skills or passions and use that information to help evaluate current Independent Director candidate applications for an initial screening.  Once the Board completes these steps, it will begin to reach out to selected candidates for more in-depth and thorough screening.  These steps will hopefully help to create a well-rounded Board of Directors with diverse skills, experiences and passions.


The Board of Directors appreciates your patience in this process.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at 719.866.4064 or if you have any questions.
