Steps in the Selection Process: Region Venturing President

  • The current region VOA president, regional Venturing volunteer advisor, and regional Venturing staff advisor will screen the candidate pool for merit and select two or more highly qualified candidates to be interviewed by the entire selection panel.
  • The current national Venturing president, the region Venturing volunteer advisor, the region VOA president, and any area VOA presidents and region or area vice presidents who are not candidates will form a panel to interview and select a new region VOA president from the qualified applicants.
  • The interview process will occur via video or phone conference.
  • The new region VOA presidents will be notified and announced prior to the National Annual Meeting, where members of the national Venturing cabinet will be formally sworn in.
  • This review and selection process will be effective starting with the selection of the 2011–2012 region VOA presidents in 2011.
