ABOUT SERVING ON THE BOARD

Remember, running for the Board is a public service to your profession and your fellow marine industry professionals. It requires dedication, sacrifice, and commitment. If you get elected, someone else will be turned away. Make sure that you are willing and able to serve and attend meetings even by teleconference.

THE WORK

Serving on the board is a duty and a responsibility to the membership and the people who brought the organization this far. VIPCA, like any organization, needs new ideas. Still, new initiatives or programs need lots of energy and time that might be better invested in VIPCA core programs. There are many things that VIPCA could do, but sustaining the programs that have already proven they add value for the marine community comes first.

Board Directors currently spend between 1-3 hours/month on VIPCA. Involvement varies depending on which committees you serve on and is expected to be variable throughout the year. We ask candidates to think about their commitment in time and energy.
