One of the most helpful ways you, and any sister you know, may assist the Nominating Committee in their work is to refer a member for service at the highest level of our organization. The Referral Form will remain open throughout the process- it is not too late to refer a member for service at the highest levels.
Remember to keep Gamma Phi Beta's member competencies in mind when referring members to serve at the highest level. If you are seeking to recommend someone for membership during recruitment, this is not the correct form. Please go here instead!
The Nominating Committee hosted four webinars during October 2019, to prepare for the Nominations and Elections process. Please review for more information about day-to-day service as an International Council or Nominating Committee member as well as the nominating process.
