In popular culture, Rom Com is short for romantic comedy, a classic movie genre that includes fan favourites like The Philadelphia Story, When Harry Met Sally and Bridget Jones’s Diary. In Tri Delta, Nom Com is an abbreviation of nominating committee, the group that oversees the placement of members in officer positions.
It might appear that Rom Com and Nom Com have nothing in common, but upon closer inspection, they do share some fundamental traits…
In a romantic comedy, the leads are usually two opposites who end up completing each other in a Yin and Yang sort of way. Similarly, your Nom Com is seeking various leadership styles and different skill sets that will balance the slate.
Action, Not Words
Although the banter is fun and memorable, it’s the action in Rom Coms that keeps them moving. Your nominating committee is looking for good communicators who will also take action to move the chapter forward.
The best Rom Coms are predictable – almost! There’s a certain formula that audiences expect, but it’s the twist and turns we didn’t see coming that keep the genre fresh and exciting. Your Nom Com strives to slate officers who value our traditional events, but who are also interested in creating novel programming experiences.
Please keep these traits in mind as you consider nominating a sister or self-nominating for the Tri Delta Toronto Alumnae Chapter 2018-2020 Executive Committee slate. Click HERE for more information on Nom Com and how you can participate in shaping our chapter leadership for the next biennium!
