The Nominating Committee is elected at CCBE’s general membership meeting during CSBA’s Annual Education Conference and Tradeshow in December of each year. This committee focuses on the nominations and electing the new slate of officers to serve CCBE. Over the past few years, CCBE has made great strides forward under the guidance of some dedicated leaders. It is the intent of the Nominating Committee to put forth nominees that will continue this tradition. CCBE believes that the immediate future for the education of California’s children face uncertain times. Now the challenge is to keep education at the forefront.

CCBE Officer candidate nominations
Have you thought about serving as President-elect, Vice President or Treasurer for CCBE? Or do you know someone that would make a great leader in CCBE?
The California County Boards of Education (CCBE) Nominating Committee is asking you to participate in this year’s CCBE Officer Nominations by submitting a nomination form and candidate application or encouraging qualified candidates to run for the election of the 2014 CCBE Vice President, President-elect and Treasurer. If we are to continue to be a “Voice for Education,” as our motto states, CCBE needs your experience, leadership and active participation in this process.
Our county offices of education continue to face challenging fiscal times and we need to continue to develop the growing relationship with California School Boards Association (CSBA). Both organizations, working in conjunction with CCSESA and other members in the education community, can and must continue to be the leadership with a “Voice for Education” in the minds of the California Legislature. We need your nominations to insure that the skilled leadership of CCBE continues to provide leadership and services to county board members and enable them to help every student succeed.
A potential candidate must:
- Serve on a county board that is a member of CCBE.
- Be able to devote the necessary time and attention to serve as an officer.
- Clearly understand CCBE's role, vision, mission and values.
- Have strong leadership skills, including abilities to collaborate, motivate and inspire.
- Be passionate supporters of public education and be strong advocates for county offices of education.
- Receive at least one nomination for officer. (Nominations may be made by either a county board that is a member of CCBE, by an individual board member whose board is a member of CCBE, or a self nomination from an individual board member whose board is a member of CCBE.)
This is a very important leadership opportunity. Your participation will make a difference in defining CCBE's statewide public education agenda. Officer nomination forms and candidacy packets must be received by CCBE by 5:00 p.m., July 30. For additional information about this process, please feel free to contact CCBE staff Charlyn Tuter.
