Thank you for your interest in nominating for the Foundation Board of Trustees. The nomination cycle is now closed. Please email the Foundation Governance Committee Chair, Danette Jones Beck, Delta Iota-Georgia, with questions at FoundationGovChr@deltagamma.org.
The Delta Gamma Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees (BOT) comprised of six elected Trustees and three ex-officio voting Trustees. The six elected Trustees are elected by the voting membership of the Foundation and serve three-year terms. Each elected Trustee is limited to serving two terms. Trustees are elected at the Foundation annual meeting.
In accordance with the Foundation Constitution, the BOT appoints a Governance Committee to act as its nominating committee. The Governance Committee is comprised of five members; two (2) voting members of the Foundation, an alumna in good standing and, if possible, the remaining two (2) members should be a former Fraternity Council member and a former BOT member. It is the responsibility of the Governance Committee to, among other things, present at least one candidate for each vacancy occurring on the BOT to the BOT and the Foundation’s voting membership by April 15.
Following the announcement that BOT nominations are open, participants of the Foundation (all members in good standing) may nominate a Delta Gamma alumna in good standing for the BOT vacancies. More information about the BOT nomination and election process can be found in the Foundation Governance Resource.
