SBN Call for Nominations

The Nominations Committee for the Sustainable Business Network is now accepting nominations for positions on our Board of Directors.  The Nominations Committee carefully reviews the nominations and then makes a recommendation to the membership of the candidates that best fit the needs of the board.  Membership will vote at or prior to the January 2013 Annual Meeting.

This year we will have up to five open positions to fill on our board.  While we are open to all nominations from our membership, this year we are prioritizing the following skills:

  • Business with more than 10 employees and/or over $550k in annual revenue with demonstrated commitment to SBN values

We have a high preference for candidates who help increase Board diversity.  We are committed to creating a diverse board that represents our membership in terms of business size, business sector, race/ethnic groups, economic status, gender and sexual orientation.   Bios of our current Board members are available online at
