Has anyone used an alternative to the traditional Nominating Committee? We're looking for alternative models.
No, we haven't in MIssouri, not sure of the alternatives, but willing to hear about them..
What does bother me on any nominating committee is when there is a panic about filling all the offices. Then we get into 'living breathing members' who come in to fill a spot. And there's the panic of not having enough people to fill all the slots. If you can't fill them, leave them open.
Also, I see more and more president slots filled by co presidents. That's a good altenative, but as a new one myself, we need to look at what we expect of our leaders. On our state level we have about 1 1/2 What do we need a board and president to do?
Thoughts and ideas?

I didn't proof read well on my last comment.
When two of us got together to look at others leagues job descripions for presidents, they were a page long and we added some more. That seems like a lot to ask a volunteer president of any organization to do.
