Board of Directors and President-Elect


CLEAR's Board of Directors wishes to solicit nominations for 2004-2006 members of its Board of Directors as well as for the position of 2004-2005 President-Elect. The board seat reserved for an associate member position is open for nominations.

A potential nominee must be both willing and able to serve. Board member terms are for a period of two years and eligible board members may stand for re-election to one additional two-year term. Over the next few years, CLEAR's board size will be reduced from 15 members to 11. The number of available positions will be affected by this change beginning with this election.

CLEAR's Board of Directors meets at least twice a year in various North American locations. Expenses for attending these meetings as well as any other expenses incurred as a result of the office are borne by the individuals or the agencies/organizations they represent

Among the criteria you should consider when nominating yourself or someone else for office are knowledge of occupational and professional regulation, commitment to the goals and programs of CLEAR, service to CLEAR, demonstrated leadership, and demonstrated ability to commit the necessary time and expense. A complete list of leadership duties is available.

To make a nomination for either President-Elect or for service on the Board of Directors, please send the nominee's name, title, address, telephone/fax numbers and e-mail address, along with a brief candidate resume, to Pam Brinegar, c/o CLEAR, 403 Marquis Avenue, Suite 200, Lexington, Kentucky, 40502 or fax to 859-231-1943. Please indicate whether the nomination is for board service or the office of President-Elect. Proposed candidates will be contacted regarding their willingness to serve. 

To allow sufficient time for preparation of mail ballots, nominations must be received at CLEAR headquarters by close of business on Friday
