PASS Board Applications

The PASS Board Applications process is an opportunity for the most qualified and engaged members of our network to submit their application for the PASS Board of Directors.

NOTE: The PASS Board Applications will be open from August 16-25, 2017.

As an active member of PASS, you have already played a key role in the incredible growth of the PASS organization and in the exciting initiatives that lie ahead. You might be considering taking the next step in helping to set PASS’ strategic direction, by joining the PASS Board. Through the PASS Board Applications process, you will have the opportunity to submit your application and enter the nominations process for one of three PASS Board of Directors seats up for election for the 2018-2019 term:

  • Two Regional Seats
    • One representing US/Canada,
    • One representing EMEA
  • One Open Seat (with no regional restrictions)

If you’re not yet ready for that level of commitment, we would ask that you talk about the upcoming election at your meetings and encourage your members to become involved – whether that means running for a seat or placing their vote.

NOTE: The PASS Board Applications will be open from August 16-25, 2017. To submit your application, please save this URL to your Favourites and visit the updated page during that time. For any additional questions related to submitting your application or the PASS Board Applications process, please contact us at governance@pass.org.
