The timeline administered by the Election Committee is underway, moving toward the At-Large Board of Directors Election to be held in the spring of 2021.
The committee includes Board members, non-Board members, and athlete representatives.
The deadline to submit statements of interest was November 6, 2020. Statements received as of that date were immediately reviewed by the Election Committee on November 9, 2020.
For potential candidates selected to move forward in the process, the second phase will include informal “get to know you” Zoom calls that will afford those individuals the opportunity to talk about their desire to serve on the Board of Directors and to ask questions of committee members.
After the Zoom calls are complete, the Election Committee will prepare a slate of between two and six individuals (up to three for each Board seat coming available) they feel will best meet the needs and forward direction of the Board. That slate will be presented to the Board of Directors at their late November meeting for ratification.
The election will be held in March 2021 with results announced in early April 2021. New Board members will officially take their seats at the conclusion of the USA Racquetball Board of Directors meeting that typically corresponds with USAR National Singles in late May each year.
