Call for Nominations September 2018

The National Center for Homeopathy (NCH) is seeking nominations to its Board of Directors for a renewable three-year term beginning at its spring meeting in June 2019, in Baltimore, MD.

We are a diverse, collaborative, closely engaged board working to fulfill the vision and mission of NCH. The Board is broadly representative of the NCH constituency, including consumers, retailers, and practitioners of various kinds. We are looking for board members with skills and experiences that can support our expanding scope. Do you, or anyone you know, have any of these qualities and skills?

  • Expertise with fundraising, finance, marketing, social media, and/or public relations
  • Naturopathic Physician, Nurse, Medical Doctor
  • Successful business or nonprofit board experience outside of homeopathy
  • Involvement with integrative healthcare or healthy-living consumer organizations
  • Homeopathic manufacturing/retail industry professional
  • Long history and experience within the NCH homeopathic community
  • Experience with public policy and advocacy work
  • Passion for homeopathy, not necessarily as a practitioner (home users, patients/clients, students, practitioners of other modalities, etc.)
  • Attorney/General Counselor or other legal experience  

Here are the details:

Along with your responsibility for governance, and committee participation, board members are expected to participate in organizational fundraising activities and personally donate as you are able, to NCH each year. Board members are not compensated for their time or services but are reimbursed for reasonable travel and lodging expenses to attend board meetings. Currently, the board has virtual monthly meetings, holds two in-person meetings a year and communicates via e-mail, video conference call, and phone throughout the year.

Please send your nominations (including self-nominations) using the subject line: Call for Nominations, to Deb Dupnik, NCH Executive Director, at ddupnik@homeopathycenter.org.

  1. Please tell us why you think the person would be a great board member
  2. What their specific qualifications are
  3. Include the nominee’s email address

The deadline for nominations is 11:59 P.M. ET, October 15, 2018.
The NCH Nominating Committee will contact nominees for an interview or to request additional information and will recommend a slate to the board. All current NCH members will be invited to vote in 2019. Members of the Board of Directors are committed to ensuring that today’s NCH builds upon the past 40+ years of this organization’s legacy to make certain that homeopathy continues as a viable healthcare option and that the public is increasingly aware of its benefits.

Many thanks for your support and enthusiasm for NCH and for homeopathy!
