Our county offices of education continue to face challenging times and we need to continue to develop the growing relationship with California School Boards Association (CSBA). Both organizations, working in conjunction with CCSESA and other members in the education community, can and must continue to be the leadership with a “Voice for Education” in the minds of the California Legislature. We need your nominations to ensure that the skilled leadership of CCBE continues to provide leadership and services to county board members and enable them to help every student succeed. CCBE can be no more effective than its leadership.
The Nominating Committee is a special committee that holds the key to a successful CCBE. This committee is charged with seeking and identifying candidates qualified for office who can provide the best possible leadership for CCBE. The Nominating Committee will nominate candidates for the offices of president-elect, vice president and treasurer, subject to procedures provided in the Standing Rules.
A potential CCBE Officer candidate:
- Have strong leadership skills, including abilities to collaborate, motivate and inspire.
- Be passionate supporters of public education and be strong advocates for county offices of education.
- Clearly understand CCBE’s role, vision, mission and values.
- Be able to devote the necessary time and attention to serve as a CCBE officer.
- Must be a current member of a county board in good standing and that board must be a member of CCBE. Candidates do not need to be a current or previous member of CSBA’s Delegate Assembly or CCBE Board of Directors.
The call for CCBE Officer nominations will open in May and candidate forms are due on July 31. Candidates will be scheduled for an interview during the CCBE Annual Conference in September. Elections are held at the CCBE General Membership Annual meeting in December.
2021 Nominating Committee
The committee members are nominated and elected at CCBE’s General Membership Annual Meeting each year. The Nominating Committee is made up of seven members representing at least four geographic regions (north, central, south and coast). Six members of the committee are elected at the annual meeting by plurality and one carry-over member is selected by the previous year’s committee to provide continuity. They are expected to carry out their charge while maintaining confidentiality and impartiality throughout the process. Over the past few years, CCBE has made great strides forward under the guidance of dedicated leaders. It is the intent of the Nominating Committee to put forth nominees that will continue this tradition.
