The SDPA Call for Volunteers for the 2020-21 term opens April 15.  All submissions are due online by midnight May 30, 2020.


Q: When does the Call for Volunteers take place?

A: Applications usually open April 15. All SDPA members will receive notification via email when the Call for Volunteers is open.

Q: How does the process work?

A: Once the Call for Volunteers is open, members can apply directly for a committee position  through the Call to Volunteer survey. The survey stays open for several weeks, then closes to allow time for appointments to be made prior to July 1. All nominees are notified either way via email a few weeks later, and new committee members begin their appointments July 1. Committee meetings commence after the annual Leadership Retreat.

Q: How are committee appointments made?

A: Committee appointments are made at the discretion of the current SDPA president with input from committee chairs. The president considers all nominations before making appointments. Members can select their top three committee choices on the application survey. A great deal of effort is made to place nominees in their first choice; however, this is not always possible. The president tries to place each person in a committee where their strengths can be put to the best possible use.

Q: How are committee chair and co-chair appointments made?

A: Committee chairs are appointed by the current SDPA president. Committee co-chairs are usually selected from current members of the committee. If a person currently on a committee would like to be considered for either the chair or co-chair positions, they would indicate that on their annual committee evaluation form. Committee co-chairs usually move into the chair position once their term as co-chair has ended.

Q: How long do committee appointments last?

A: Committee chairs and members serve a two-year term. Committee co-chairs serve a one-year term, and can be re-appointed to the position yearly for up to three years.
