2021 SHARE Election Information

Letter from the Nominating Committee Chairman

If you are reading this, it is likely that you take an active interest in the governance and strategic direction of SHARE Association. Governed by an independent Board of Directors, SHARE is owned and operated on behalf of the Members that make up the heart and soul of the organization. Every year, SHARE holds an election, which determines the composition of its Board of Directors. In my role as the Immediate Past President of SHARE, I am honored to chair the Nominating Committee, tasked with the goal of prospecting those individuals best qualified to be a candidate for the SHARE Board of Directors.


The Nominating Committee is seeking capable people from a diverse background to help set the future direction of SHARE, to be stewards of the 65-year old institution within the Enterprise IT community. We will be proposing a candidate of two Director Positions at the upcoming summer SHARE election, to be held in August. The committee will be conversing with candidates and conducting formal interviews with those interested in being considered as candidates. This process serves as an opportunity to better understand the organization, holistically, and ensure it is meeting the needs of its Members.


The opportunity to serve on the SHARE Board of Directors provides a unique opportunity to participate at the highest level of organizational management, and grapple with complex and high-level issues not usually encountered in many of our day-to-day day jobs. The time spent each week on SHARE work, though critical to the function of the organization, rarely exceeds the time spent by many of our dedicated SHARE volunteers. Those who are selected for the final slate will be required to provide a written statement of commitment signed by themselves and their manager. The conditions of this commitment are outlined in the questionnaire, linked below, which each candidate is asked to complete.


If you have any questions about the process, think you might be interested in being considered, or know someone whom you would like to recommend, please follow these simple steps:

  • Step 1: Review this short ten-minute document, outlining notes for prospective candidates and this document, highlighting questions to consider
  • Step 2: Reach out to me, Justin.Bastin@share.org, or any Nominating Committee member to share your interest and further connect on the opportunity
  • Step 3: Participate in a call with the Nominating Committee to discuss your interest in joining the SHARE Board

On behalf of the members of the SHARE Nominating Committee, I thank you for your support of SHARE.


Justin Bastin
Immediate Past President
