PAVO Board Elections

2017 PAVO Elections Update ~ Nominations for Director-at-Large Being Accepted 

by Tammy Dotson, Interim Director, PAVO Board of Directors 

CORRECTION: The PAVO Elections related article in the March/April 2017 edition of The Official Word incorrectly stated that nominations are being accepted for a Board Delegate position. It should have stated that nominations are being accepted for a Director-at-Large position. 

The PAVO Board of Directors will hold its annual election in August and would like to remind you that nominations are being accepted for the board position of Director-at-Large. The position is currently held by Mr. Donnie Goodwin who has served the organization and membership in that capacity for the maximum two consecutive terms allowed. The PAVO Board of Directors (Board) consists of twelve (12) positions, and the two (2) Director-at-Large members are elected to serve staggered terms of three (3) years. This position is elected to serve a three-year term, 2018-2020. 

Directors-at-Large serve a critical role in the overall governance and structure of PAVO. In addition to the general duties and responsibilities of all members of the PAVO Board of Directors, specific duties of a PAVO Director-at-Large include: 

  • Solicit concerns, issues, questions, opinions, and feedback from Members and Affiliated Boards. 
  • Represent Member perspectives to the Board. 
  • Communicate regularly with Affiliated Board leadership to ensure local compliance with PAVO procedures, policies, and guidelines.
