Openings for the Society Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of the Barbershop Harmony Society has openings for Society President, Society Executive Vice-President, and Society Treasurer for one-year terms and Member-At-Large for three-year terms beginning in 2019.

These openings will be filled by election of the board at its summer meeting at the International Convention in Salt Lake City, June 30 - July 7, 2019. The board is seeking effective, visionary leaders with an impressive history of service in barbershop, business, public service, education, or other areas. Further, the Nominating Committee is committed to creating a more inclusive and diverse Society governance structure beginning with the Board of Directors and welcomes all candidates who may help us achieve that goal.

If you have a desire to serve your Society at the highest level, this is your chance. The deadline for applying is midnight, Friday, March 15, 2019.

Final Candidates will be expected to attend, at Society expense, the Society Board meetings in Salt Lake City on July 1 - 3, 2019, where the election will take place.

If you are elected, you will be expected to participate in all the meetings after July 2019*:

  • August 18, 2019
  • September 14-16, 2019 (Board Retreat weekend, location TBD)
  • September 22, 2019
  • October 20, 2019
  • November 17, 2019
  • December 15, 2019
  • January 7 - 12, 2020 (Midwinter Convention, Jacksonville, FL)
  • June 28 - July 5, 2020 (International Convention, Los Angeles, CA)

The board holds regularly scheduled telephone conferences throughout the year. A successful candidate elected to the Board will be expected to attend all of these telephone conferences held on the 3rd Sunday of each month via Webex.

All board members will be assigned as a district representative and may be expected to serve as representatives of the Society President and the Society Board at up to two (2) district House of Delegates meetings each year – again, at Society expense. These are usually, but not always, held at district conventions.

*All Board meeting dates are tentative.
