What you will need for your GEO Board Nomination

GEO accepts nominations directly from members interested in joining the Board during the nomination window which is open 30 days before elections. You are required to nominate yourself for a Board position. You will need to supply the following information via the form below no later than 5:00pm Pacific Time (UTC -7) on 15 May:

  • a professional color headshot of yourself (high-resolution photo must be at least 350px wide by 350px high in GIF, JPG or PNG format only; maximum file size is 3.0MB);
  • a short statement describing why you want to be on the GEO Board (which will be displayed on the voting ballot);
  • and a current biography.

As a GEO Board member, you are required to commit to the necessary time and resources to fulfill the role as well as to attending two in-person Board meetings, held in either the U.S. or Europe. If you cannot commit to the time and expense associated with this travel, please notify us. We have many other volunteer positions available that may suit your circumstances better.

All interested individuals are encouraged to contact GEO's Executive Director, Danyle Anderson, for further information regarding the election process and Board member responsibilities.
